      Description

      MDL-9376 prevents a student from receiving forum emails from a Q and A type forum unless they have posted to the forum. This prevents students from getting other students' responses. Unfortunately, it also prevents a student from receiving the initial question, which is unexpected (from the point of view of the instructor). See https://github.com/mackensen/moodle/compare/MOODLE_19_STABLE...MDL-29402 for potential untested fix.
