If people complain we could take it to a private mailing list. But having it here could inspire more participation on SO because it would only take a click to get over there.

After thinking about this for a bit I wonder if it might just check daily and find any posts that are older than a day and haven't had an answer. It would only prompt here if there's no answer there. That way people here aren't bothered so much and people there are likely to get a response within 2 days at most.
