Hi Devin,

   I have patched HyperNews so that it will perform the equivalence of
$hnNotifyPoster on per-forum basis. We can now create/touch a file 
hndocs/<forum>/.notNotifyPoster in the forum directory to disable the
notification to the poster/owner of a thread.

   $ touch hndocs/forumname/.notNotifyPoster 

   Please give the new version hypernews1.11-slac-76 a try at your convenience
to see if it works properly.

   Thanks!
