True, but an automatic email notification to the admin would just have
lots of people asking us how to turn it off.

You can't make people do something they don't want to do. If they
don't want to be active about it, then continuously annoying them
ain't gonna do it.

Promote that feed however you like. Create automated emails based on
it if you wish.
