#492 Add "Email this..." link to each story

Stories (85)

add a link to each story that allows a reader to
email it to a friend. I wanted to email the Peak Oil
story to a friend I had talked about it with
earlier. It is easy to email the URL, but easier
(and a call to action) if you have the email this

    This opens issues of abuse we've never really been comfortable dealing with. I
    know every other site in the world does it but my guess is most of our target
    audience keeps an email client open anyway and can copy-paste a URL just as
    well anyway. Rob, if you want to reconsider this, feel free to assign to someone.

    Jamie -

    Good points about Slash user behaviour and abuse. Perhaps a
    mailto link without the TO: filled in, but with the subject
    and the body containing some / all the article and the link?
    Making it easier to send will improve total mailings, views
    and comments

    I've always thought this was stupid since every browser has
    this built in.
