There isn't (to my knowledge) an out-of-the-box way to do what you want.
While I was at Vistage we did a customization on our instance to do exactly what you describe; we called it "Follow First" meaning "send me notices on every new content thread, but not on replies". Our users loved it; it was one of the most commonly used features.
Thanks John, very interesting. I'll talk to our IT folks to see what they think of that.
