I guess C. Scott's point is more about email being decades older than
Discourse (or other server-side/proprietary discussion software).
OTOH I know people (dherman, cough) who can't hack the email load of
es-discuss, and do not like the well-known email tendency to have
threads run off the rails into endless digression and argumentation.
But Arv's point about gmail mute feature is good. I think any competent
email reader should have that.
If not, does Discourse support email as a first-class subscription
mechanism? That (plus mute) might help.
