That's a good idea, but I don't want to put too
much text on any one archive page.  Since these
pages contain basically only people's names and a
few keyword-dense sentences from the beginnings of
threads, they're helpful for searching.  If I put
a bunch of malarkey on the page, it would probably
make it vanish from the top results.

Maybe the best thing to do would be to put the
original poster's name in front of the text excerpt
from the beginning of the thread, like this:
