I actually have an example of a six person conversation over several turns that I was involved in where the participants used both topicality and addressivity in order to indicate that they were part of the conversation.
Originally the symbol for addressivity was user-produced.
In particular, they consider the function of the @/(at) sign as a marker of addressivity.
These conversations are facilitated in large measure by the use of the (at) sign as a marker of addressivity, as most of you probably know.
Examples of this in CMCMC are innovation of addressivity markers, development of 3rd party clients to access and view messages, and redundant posting strategies. 4.
