    Perhaps an even more intelligent way of doing this is registering gaps in one s knowledge about a particular subject and the system alerting you automatically.

      In the UK, BT has an application called Jasper that enables:
       
      The content of shared information is analysed and matched against every user's profile in the community of interest.  If the profile and document match strongly enough, Jasper emails the user, informing him or her of the page that has been stored along with any annotation.  Users can self-activate/ de-active this alerting service.
       
      Unfortunately this software is not freely available.

      Phil,
       
      I like the 3-case layout you provided.  As you mention, this does require the right kind of search engine that is contextual and not necessarily keyword driven.  Some fine-tuning may be required to identify a lower threshold for pattern matching.  Otherwise, you may never have any searches yield case 3 results.

      What I see happening in the process of asking a question in a community is:
       
      1) member has a question
      2) pattern recognition (or context establishment):
      -case 1----strong pattern recognized (ie: question identified & recognized)
      ------>display answer(s) (ie list responses to question, ranked based on a preference such as most recent or most widely appreciated by members) with option to continue with post of question to list or to not ask question since answered already.
      -case 2----weak pattern recognized (ie: keyword or phrase recognized)
      ----->display links to answers with options to 'perhaps consider the following', but set default to go ahead and post.
      -case3 ----->no pattern recognized
      ------> post question to community directly.
