OK, then I'm back to my initial position -- since informative responses
can easily come deeper in the thread, this technique (even if it were
supported by the list manager capabilities) would lead to such responses
failing to reach the OP without additional action by the responder.
However, if the OP is given information about use of nabble, say (either
by the moderator supplying general instructions, or a list member
supplying a specific link to the thread), then the OP has access to
*all* responses and no cc'ing would ever be required. This possibility
is supported even with no changes made through the list manager.
Hmmm.. Ok, another idea...
Just send an auto-reply to the unsubbed OP when they post anything, with
a direct link to the Nabble thread, and inform the user that they will
need to get their answers from there - although they'd have to actually
visit the link to know if there were any more answers...
OK, but if this is sent before (or as part of) moderator processing, the message won't yet have made
it to nabble, so there isn't a direct thread link available. I doubt autoprocessing could come up
with the nabble thread link in any case, sounds pretty tricky. What I think would have to happen for
LibO is for the moderator to supply general information about how the user can find his thread on
nabble and "subscribe" to it (assuming nabble has that capability, I don't know it well enough to
say). There are some related possibilities, I'm trying to get my act together to set up a wiki page
Anyway, it looks like I'm fighting a losing battle... and honestly, if
the moderators don't mind all of the work, who am I to complain? I can
easily just circular file the noise the situation generates...
I think the best way to resolve this completely would be a Forum-Mailist
gateway, where the unsubbed OP is automatically subscribed to the
companion forum thread and will receive email updates whenever someone
replies (via email or the forum)...
Interesting. So any unsubscribed user's post to the list would automatically be replicated on a
forum (presumably the users.services.openoffice.org "Beginners" forum for OOo, and
LibreOfficeForum.org "Beginners with LibreOffice" forum for LibO) and all subsequent posts to the
thread, through either mechanism, would also be replicated on the other? Sounds really good, if it
could be implemented.
