Not to reopen this can of worms, but for me, it's simple: I look at my
mailbox and RSS reader many times a day.  I look at the Icehouse wiki
(and other web forums) maybe once a month on average.  If there's a
conversation going on that I want to take part in, I won't see it
unless it arrives in my mailbox or my RSS reader.  I used to subscribe
to the RSS feed of all updates to the wiki, but I eventually
unsubscribed because it was too much noise and not enough signal.  Is
there a way to make a feed out of just my watchlist?  Or have changes
to my watchlist be sent to me by email?

I am totally in favor of as many voters as we can get, however we can
get them.  I hope nobody misinterpreted my comment about the last
contest being an "aberration", I didn't mean it pejoratively.
