Not sure I'm following all of this.

Are you saying the following:
	-- that in order to be able to post to such a page each poster would have to be a manager
	-- that no more than 50 people therefore could be allowed to post
	-- that anyone who could post could also edit and/or delete everyone else''s posts, not only their own?

If so, I can see very large disadvantages to that over an email list, or for that matter over a decently-run message board (though the email list has the advantage over a message board that it's not necessary to sign in, nor to deal with ads.)
