You can subscribe forum thread email notification service. Suppose you use
gmail account to subscribe, then when threads you interested get reply, you
will get mail notification and in Pidgin you can check summary of new mail.
The way maybe solve your problem.  Of cource, your idea of readding forum
message directly in pidgin is great. But as you said, the forum doesn't provide
standard data acccess protocal and the support may be some difficult.
