[Moin-user] Change bars / formatting for email threads?

I agree that nestable block quotes would be pretty slick (much like
slashdot.org forums).   For now, we just create a new page for each new
topic.  But that may be awkward for your application.  I made it easy by
making the discussion page a template (DiscussionPageTemplate), like so:
= Let's Talk! =
 . (!) Did you know you can get notified by email whenever someone adds a
new comment? Simply click the 'subscribe' link above!
Discussion for '''General Content'''
''There are [[PageComment(countonly=1)]] comments so far.''

Hi Rick.  Thanks for the suggestion.  I'll try out PageComment2, and I like
it, though it's not what I'm looking for, in that it doesn't allow comments
on comments.

TiddlyWiki has nestable block quotes, which is more like what I'm thinking
of.  In MoinMoin wikis, I've seen how people simply use increasing nesting
for each level of reply, which is the opposite of the email convention.
Maybe that's good enough for now.

I implemented 'PageComment2' (running moinmoin 1.5.5a) and people
here love it.  Not sure if this is exactly what you're describing,
but it's very similar to a typical web forum.
