Default Thread Subscription may cause a lot of unecessary questions

  1. Thread Subscription is on by default. While I try to read everything when I sign up or subscribe to something, I do overlook things. I would imagine this is the same with many other people.

    I have to admit I was fairly surprised when I got about 10 e-mails within an hour.

    Someone else has also raised this question. After some searching, I was capable of turning it off (Hope it works). But I suspect this will raise many topics in the future with the title, "H0wZ u tuRn 0ff 3mAl3 5u8SkriPsHuns, d00d!!!!!???????"

    I haven't been able to find the option of not putting that as the default, until then I guess you should read throughfully the options you are given when registering. :rolleyes:
