Thanks for the note.  Is now a good time for me to say how much I despise how the group mechanisms work on LinkedIn? :)  I've unsubscribe from every single one I have been a member of.

There are two things I have found that actually work (for me, at least).  1.) mailing lists like this one, and 2.) vBulletin forums because of how their email notifications are configured (as far as I know no other forums work the same way.)  Since I doubt it would make sense to create a vBulletin forum, I was thinking a mailing list devoted to plugin discussions would make lots of sense, especially if hosted by Automattic.
