Well I don't know how hard it is to moderate a slash site.  Moderation 
of a targabot is easy.

We also have an ad server that is pretty easy for an administrator to 
use, but at the moment it only sticks ads in outgoing mails.  The whole 
point of a targabot is that everything is rulebased, so ads could be 
delivered based on a user's profile, but I didn't specify a profile in 
my example.

I was thinking something really low volume, like the current announce 
list and the news page.  If you want something like where 
they try and create real news for it all the time it could easily scale.

Based on the current announce list I didn't think the pg related 
software annoucements merited their own list.
