in only one diary I'm getting emails about comment replies

I didn't check the "send me email notifications" box for any comment I made but when I made a reply and was paying attention (due to the email notifications) I saw it was auto-checked and I unchecked it. BUT I still am receiving notifications anyway.

The weirdness is only for my comments in this Daily Bucket

    I'm finding the “send emails” box is auto checked every time I refresh a diary, and not just the Daily Bucket. Is there a way to turn that off for good? I'm sick of my inbox filling up with those notifications. Thanks.

    Not an admin but I've seen this before.
    Try answering the email and unchecking it there.

    OceanDiver - there's a setting in the DK profile (go to Edit Profile -
    Display Settings) that should be global. It's off in mine and I never
    checked the "send email notification" in those DB comments. I reported it
    because it seems a glitch.

    Hello, and thanks.

    Yes, it's confusing, partly because the setting option in the user profile does NOT refer to getting email notifications for comment replies, but for email notifications of Kosmails. (I won't argue with you if you say that distinction should be clearer. But the profile page option came first when only Kosmails were at issue.)

    It's also confusing because the darn comment notification is supposed to stay put, once you click -- or unclick -- that blue box, and it appears not to do so. Tracking it down to see when or how this change happens on its own is yet another layer of complexity. The problem with the comment-notification box is ticketed, but I don't have any more to say about it than that right now.
