 Sometimes while writing a post, I realize this is something a lot of
 people on the site should be aware of. Either everyone subscribed to the
 group in posting in, or to everyone on the site. Yet, I never use the
 site-wide private message, firstly because that's a secondary action I
 usually can't be bothered to do, and secondly because I don't always want
 ''everyone's'' attention, but rather only those interested in the topic at

 What if you set aside some usernames like @all and @group for simple site-
 wide mention notifications? @all would be everyone on the site. @group
 would be everyone in the group you are posting in. Possibly there could
 also be a way of addressing specific groups, e.g. "Everyone in this @group
 and @troubleshooting please take notice..." though that could in rare
 cases cause conflicts with usernames.

 Just a thought. Might be plugin territory I guess.
