Re: None defaultNotification for individual forums (Devin Bougie)

Hi Devin,

   When a non-member posts a message to a forum, the poster will be subscribed
to that particular thread, but not to the forum. He/she will get a copy to
the responses to this thread only. I think the rationale is that since a site's
configuration allows non-member to post message, the poster should also be 
able to see the response to the message he posted. 

   But the non-member poster shouldn't be added to the subscription list,
and the poster can't add himself or herself to the subscription list since 
he/she is not a member. I just tested this mechanism by posting a message to a
forum from a non-member and the poster's email is not added to the 
subscription list.

   Maybe I missed the difference between 'forum' and 'mailing list' in this
context. Does the 'mailing list' here means using a forum's subscription list 
to be a list with which all messages to this forum are to be distributed? 
Or does it mean something else?
