I have to admit, I find this attitude somewhat ironic. The standards group
for a major component of the browser avoiding browsers. I understand trying
to avoid the replication of email. These days, there are a lot of
communication platforms that don't interoperate, and so it may seem like
email is still a universal client, and therefore who needs anything else -
but seriously, are you all so cynical that the additional value gained
means nothing? As long as discourse supports email notifications/responses,
then I don't really see the compelling reason not to make the switch. The
advantages of switching are numerous: better search, easier participations,
easier organization/categorization of threads, better formatting/code
highlighting, etc.
