This has been discussed several times before, as I best as I can recall. Personally, I like the idea. Dunno what you might do about some of those people with weird characters in their names, other than coerce them to change their nick.

One thing the search did reveal was something I wasn't aware of (or forgot... Alzhiemers means having new friends every day). Rudimentary Node2Email. This will let you send the contents of a node to an e-mail address.

    This is a briliant idea. Unfortunately I am one of those people with weird characters in their names :(

    I had problems with the Tk Chatterbox script yesterday and had to make a quick hack to be able to log on.

    I don't mind if I have to change my nick - although I kind of like it.

    There is always the option of a plug-in email service to get started. Such as Everyone.net - Simple change of MX record and addition of CNAME and it's ready to go. However with hundreds of good programmers here maybe we could come up with something better ourselves?

    Just a suggestion. :)

    UPDATE: Did I mention that it's free?
