Thanks, Axel, that sounds about right.

i've seen web-based forums where, when you post, you can 'subscribe' to a
thread so that you're notified via email when somebody responds to your
post. here is an integration of web-based forum and list/email. it doesn't
'push' too hard.

though it would also be nice, when registering for such forums, to be given
the option of receiving regular html email or plain text email. so that
people could choose to have the web interface 'pushed' to them via email on
a regular basis or as new material is posted to various folders.

could you post the fibre-culture urls and describe the function and possibly
relations among the urls? the architecture of fibre-culture at a glance, as
it were.
