Stupid Designs

Just left a comment on BenWerd's blog post here and was surprised to notice that there's no way to receive email notifications whenever a reply is left to it.

Which strikes me as the quickest way to discourage discussion I can think of.

The alternative it provides is an RSS feed, which is staggeringly less efficient - it means that I have to have an RSS feed for each discussion I want to pay attention to, and that each person who wants to scan discussions has to set this up (which is a lot of clutter) - and then the server will get hit on an hourly basis (or more often) on discussions that aren't generating any new comments.
