Would it make sense that after the first 10 to 25 responses on a particular post, that subsequent posts automatically initiate something like "Vol. 2"?
Many of our most popular posts get 50+ responses. Sadly, if many of you are like me, you see a "Good" topic "Die", because you just can't "Wade" through the sheer mass of responses.
At least that way you could follow a "Hot Topic" easier and keep it "Fresh", if it deserved to be followed.
