My perhaps not so humble opinion is that making the archives private would lend a false sense of security to those posting to the list. I'm not sure what sensitive information you're trying to protect, but my personal experience is that once you hit "send", the information is public whether you expect it to be or not, because who know where it will be filed or forwarded by recipients.
I think the choice is between no archives or a moderator educated in what's inappropriate for a public setting for the list. Anything more subtle is likely to create confusion.
