Isn't this the ui *group*?

Your link is to the UI blog, a terrible place to have discussions. Yes
there are comments but there is no way to be notified of new comments
or replies by email. For the authors of posts it works fine, you must
get emails when people comment, but there is no way to make sure that
people above your know you replied to them, or that you have a chance
to reply to people who make comments on your comments.

I think if we want to have discussions this is the appropriate place,
and any decision that is 'discussed' on the blog that is of any
importance should be discussed here as well.

Obviously I'd support subscribe-to-comments or Intense Debate being
installed on the blog as well.
