Perhaps some sort of page explaining not only who is in a restricted
group, why and how other community members can join may also be
information that would put fears at ease.

Do we have admin minutes? cat we read the logs for -admin? all of the
interactions within the administration of an organisation even a sudo
one need to be made public where they interact with the public.

A page dedicated to who is banned, moderated, for how long and _why_
might be helpful too.
