Yes. I updated the mod to allow more than one forum to be listed.

(If you only need to subscribe users to one forum, there's no reason to update).

It would be a good idea to auto-subscribe to older users

I don't know, I'm not a lawyer or anything. But I know I get subscribed to newsletters all the time. My understanding is that (in the US anyway) the email needs to include instructions for unsubscribing, and the vb subscription emails do.

But that's a good point - anyone who chooses to use this should make sure it's not breaking any laws where they live or host their site.

I don't want to add it to this mod, but I'm attaching a script you can use to add forum subscriptions for all users. You need to edit the script to set the forums and type of notification, upload it to your forum directory, run it, then remove it.

As someone mentioned above, I have no idea if subscribing someone to a mailing list is legal everywhere or not. But I do know that it's annoying, and doing it too often (or doing it after someone has chosen to unsubscribe) may well be illegal, so use with caution.
