    Anyway to "educate" members of Hellcat.Org on the use of the thread tools?

    Topic gets posted....

    Topic is of interest so use thread tools to subscribe with email notification....

    Then get bombarded with email after email notification for every person who is interested in the thread but rather than use the thread tools they post "subscribing".

    Nothing of value in their post.

    Subscribing is as simple as clicking "Watch Thread" in the header at the top right. That will open a popup which allows you to choose whether you're notified by email or not. You can also set a preference in your profile preference page. You're right about typing in "following" though....I think that's an outgrowth of Facebook groups (where I often find it just as annoying). As to spreading the word, I'm not sure where to put that that would be sure to be seen by everyone that's guilty of doing that, though. I'm willing, but I've learned that habits are hard to break, especially among the lazy. ;)
