the censor of all that someone else sends?

Yes. Your service is facilitating the communication. If two people get into a fight through your list, carry it off into private email and it turns abusive, you still have responsibility, because you still have a liability issue. How much liability depends on the situation and who does what, but don't for a second think the court won't see you as at least partially liable as the owner of the source of the abuse.
