Every web forum I know of send notification email to the original poster

Well now, that's *very* interesting! I clearly haven't used forums in too long, I've never seen 
this. It still doesn't help with a forum analog of this conversation, though, since I didn't 
originate this thread.

Many forums, and wiki pages, allow you to tick a box to "watch" them,
even if you didn't originate them, and then you'll get a notification of
each response. I agree, though, that it's a nuisance to not have the
response itself show up in one's email, but only the notification.

I'm trying to learn about wikis so I can
host and manage one on this subject, but I'd gladly defer to somebody else who can put one up 
on the
TDF site where it really belongs. Any takers?
It's a wiki - be can't really break it - well, not really

Are you saying there's already a wiki page established that we could use to collect all these 
thoughts? Or that I could create a page off the TDF wiki (assuming I would be able to get 
appropriate authorization) and run with it? In either case, wonderful -- what's the next step?

To edit a wiki page or add a page to the wiki, all you need is to
register. No special permissions needed. Go to any wiki page and look in
the upper right-hand corner for Login/Register. You'll get a standard
confirmation email, which you have to respond to.
