I've suddenly started getting email notifications of replies. I double checked my profile and I have "off" for notification and "no" for notify me when people I follow....
What's going on?

    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    The profile indicator you've looked at is for notification of responses to your Kosmails, not to your comments.

    The option to get email notification of replies to comments is in each comment. See the little line of text at the bottom? Uncheck it so that you don't get a reply to that comment.

    It is true that 1) the default setting is "on" for that option; 2) that once someone changes it, that change should remain in effect; and 3) we've been getting reports that indeed the uncheck status does not remain as stable as it should.

    We're investigating that situation now. It would help if you confirmed your operating system and browser so we can add that information to our data.

    Thanks for your help with troubleshooting, and sorry for the inconvenience.

    Sorry -- didn't see this until now. I use Chrome on an iMac with whatever is the newest (or second newest at that time -- I think they just updated again) operating system.

    p.s. it looks like I have not been getting those unwanted emails for the last couple of weeks, which is probably why I forgot all about this.

    Thank you for the update and information.
    This is part of the problem, trying to track down an intermittent problem. We'll keep at it.
