Phil, Its unclear to what your agreeing? Hen was +0. Your comment sounds 
like your not wanting it (ie -0).

I strongly think the reason that commons-user is low traffic is that 
users do not want to get email for stuff they are not interested in nor 
do they want to manage complex filter rules on their email, so they 
never join it.

Believe me, I've worked IT support for university professors, sometimes 
I'm very surprised they even know what an email account is...let alone
