You'd lose the ability to change the wording for the author's email
as well.

Ok, I haven't seen this code and I'll root through all the files and
eventually find it. But, I'm assuming that the replies and user
tables are already joined in the query (I'd think they'd have to be).

If we wanna avoid this double-email (which, as I've realized from my
latest article, is really quite annoying, I must say), could we not
simply join content as well and add a where clause to the "replies"
query (as opposed to the author query) the effect of " and not

Just throwing that out there. I dont really know how much of a
performance hit that entails and a big part of me assumes that if
this was a good idea, the SQLGod(tm) would have mentioned it.

So, this is just in case. Word on the street is he had quite a few
