I tried to find the answer to this myself but haven't had much luck. Whenever I reply to a thread with the form field at the bottom of a post, I find I'm suddenly set up to watch the thread and I get emailed every time someone posts a response. I did find if I click the button for extra options that it opens a window where I can then un-check the "watch this thread" option. Is there any way in my settings that I can completely disable having that "watch this thread" box checked for me? I do like to follow up on threads where I've participated in the discussion, but don't want it emailed to me every time someone adds something, but would also like to not have to uncheck that box every single time. Hopefully it's a simple setting I'm missing somewhere. I appreciate your help.
