You should also consider that people like to read on the go, that is on a
mobile device and whilst Meta has the mobile site enabled, email often
works best for many people.

Think of it this way: if someone is going to make the effort to open an
email to read its contents after looking at the subject line, then they'd
presumably want to know more information - even if just a snippet as
suggested previously - *in that email* rather than having to go elsewhere
to find it.
