For the knowledge and support that you get from this forum, is it worth at least $10? You got it. For the bean counters, though, can you give us an idea what could be done with the money? Dream big, no lawyers will read this. (Virus software keeps them out.)
I, for one, would wish for a function to allows me to flag threads and add a 'Keep watch' or such function to it. This would allow me to follow threads I am interested in by flagging/marking them for my attention. Alternatively, allow all replies to an individual thread to be sent to my email.
