In addition to Skype 2.5 (Beta), Skype also provide a solution called Skypecasts allowing you to host conference call between a group of up to 100 people. Each conference call is moderated by the host, who is able to mute, eject or pass the virtual microphone to participants.
Online communities/Bloggers can benefit this feature by scheduling Skypecasts and promote them on the website for people to participate. TypePad users can promote their Skypecasts by using TypePad Widget.
