Perhaps "cryptography at metzdowd.com" could get people comfortable
with cryptography by encrypting all of its messages using PGP or
equivalent ?

At the very least we could authenticate the contents of the
messages in this email list.

Also, the email could include a hash of the previous one, so
that no one could delete or insert a message without everyone

Publish a public key for submissions; use this one or another
key for authentication.
