Blogs, comments & email

When I post a comment on someone's LiveJournal, I get emailed if someone replies. This works because I'm also a LiveJournal user and a setting allows me to request email notification.

When I post a comment on someone's blog, I don't know get notified of any later comments. However, often the blog software asks for name, email address and website address. It doesn't display the email address - perhaps it's just stored for access from the blog administrator - but it could offer an "email further comments to me" option when posting.

Hmm, maybe this is feedback that should go to Wordpress et al. Of course, not all servers can send email and not all admins would want the extra bandwidth or load, but it would be nice...
