Getting emails when people comment

Rachel and I were talking about the problem with the lack of notification when comments show up.
It's a pain because people comment thinking that their thoughts will be heard, but everyone else has no idea when there are new comments or where to find them.

If you go to Settings -> Comments, and then go to the bottom of the page, there's a box in which you can put your email address to get emails whenever someone comments. Though it might clutter up your inbox...

Edit:
Scratch that. I just found the rss feed for comments:

  1. Hey Scott- Could you explain what an RSS feed is and how it's used?

  2. go to google reader. it's in the top left corner of gmail, along with 'Photos' and whatnot. add an rss feed by copying the given url into the 'add a subscription' button's box.
    now information comes to you.
    You can get more feed by clicking on the little orange button with white lines coming out of the bottom left corner which appears on certain pages or in the URL bar of firefox. (this blog should have one)

    For an explanation of RSS watch this video:
