It would be most helpful if the subject of the thread to which one were subscribed were appended to the subject line in the Email notification.
Rather than getting an Email notification with the subject of
"FICO Forums Subscription: 1 New Message"
it might have a subject of
"FICO Forums Subscription: 1 New Message - Re: what do i need to do for a 350?"
Folks might respond to a thread with a topical, legit question a week or so later, and if they see no response might get discouraged and go away. Perhaps even coming over to the dark side of CR forums.
