There's a bit of a catch to it, though:
In order to receive follow-ups via email, you’ll need to post your comment using your Google Account. We only send comments to your verified Google Account so that someone else can’t use this feature to send you email you didn’t sign up for.Not much worse than I've experienced on some other hosting services, especially TypePad. So, not ideal, but better than nothing.
