The idea is very good, as Multi-Authors Blogs indeed face the day-to-day annoying task of building a separate contact form for each author - for inclusion after the author's posts. But when authors get such emails from readers, they are not interested in just a subject line and text. They are certainly interested in additional details such as the reader's name, email address, maybe a phone number, and maybe additional one or two details. These are not necessarily going to be provided through the subject and description area. It's a miss. Sorry... not good enough. It could be the rock-star of Multi-Authors Blogs if it included more fields, including validation (email, no code), and if each additional field could be configured (field tag, mandatory or not etc). Good idea though. I guess it's only a matter of time before such a plugin becomes available.
