You are right in the sense that updates to old threads
don't get that much exposure. (my /msg idea was just
to compensate for that). You can surely ask yourself if
the PM-comunity wants
exposure on detailistic threads.
I'd answer "No", and state that interested ppl will come back.
And you hit solid rock when you say that interesting threads
are buried under flawed titles. A better solution would be
if ppl change the titles of subthreads, just like they do
in newsgroups. I promise to improve myself and change
titles from now on. QED
If you think clearly, there is new functionality in the
Parlour section! The only thing is the other status
of threads... and that reminds me of a
previous discussion. And maybe the ability
to track a discussion.

Update: I really agree with kudra on the was syntax.
