Who is posting

Although we love the bump alert when posting. It would be great to actually see that someone is posting as well.  That way there is even less of a chance of bumping a person's ppst.

This requires a significant overhead on the server, since it would have to check the server every few seconds to see if someone was posting (and conversely, if someone is writing, they need to notify the server too)

Such additional requests would not go down well on a small hosting plan.
