Certainly a worthy concern. I think the number itself is useful enough, but not a lot of surrounding verbiage. Even the label "Message #" may not be necessary.Feature: perhaps the message footer could contain the message numberI'm concerned about 'footer bloat'. Do you think this would be useful
Perhaps integrate it with something that's already there, such as:
Message 653, you receive all messages sent to this group.or even
You receive all messages sent to this group (#653).That may not work semantically with some of the other subscription choices, I haven't seen those footers.
