I've been using the new email when I have a reply option randomly to see how it works and found one glitch. I think the glitch is associated with an embed from Facebook as only those to the one comment with the FB embed were screwed up. In the email, I clicked on the "Stop Following this Discussion" link and the Unfollow page's text was jumbled. Screenshot attached that shows the result. Also - separate issue maybe - another DK user said (in response to this original comment I was following) that sometimes images in my text/comments don't show for her and other times they do. Since I use Image Lib, Flickr, Photobucket and FB images, I wonder if it is just the FB embeds that don't appear. (ALSO THANKS!! for emailing me that Instagram now embeds.)

    The same overlapping text also happens for comments that included a tweet embed. It doesn't happen for comments with nothing but text.

    Oh, that's interesting. So there's an unexpected consequence: we have to keep an eye out for how the email display works now! I'll investigate. Thanks for the screenshots.

    To be clear (not sure if I was) - the text overlap is on the DK page (or
    whatever it is) that one navigates to by clicking on the Stop Following
    this Comment link IN the email. That link goes to a page that has the
    comment/reply and a notice that I am not going to receive notifications any
    more. It isn't in the actual email sent to me as a notification.

    Ah yes, thank you for the clarification. I haven't yet proceeded to test this out, so eventually I would have figured it out -- but this helps set the record straight earlier.
