This morning in the Daily Bucket w/o my checking the box to enable them. Just a heads up as this hasn't happened in awhile. I opened each email and unsubscribed from notifications.

    Thanks for the alert.
    Is there anything in your setup for the site that has changed between the last time you had this issue and now?
    There must be some sort of interference, but we've not yet figured out what.

    No changes. I clear cache/history often. Before writing that Help Desk
    ticket, I looked at the diary (today's Daily Bucket) and saw that the "Send
    Notifications" box was checked at the top of the comment section so I
    unchecked it (after unsubscribing by using the link in each email
    notification). I never checked it - happened on its own. And now I'm again
    receiving email notifications to replies and the first notification came at
    11:32 when I was writing my HelpDesk ticket just after all the
    unsubscribing and unchecking. When I unchecked it in the comment section
    heading I went to a few other diaries to see if it would be auto-checked
    there and it wasn't. I didn't comment there to test it out, though.

    Another piece of info. After writing my last reply to you, I checked the DB
    to be sure the "get notifications" box wasn't checked in the comment
    section - it was not checked. But I just received an email notice about
    this reply made at 2:05pm -
    And I didn't check the "get notification" in that original comment I made
    (to which bonnieblue replied) nor is the general notification box at top of
    comment section checked.

    MacBook Pro 2016; OS High Sierra 10.13.6; Chrome 67.0.3396.87 (should be
    the most up to date version as I have auto-update turned on).

    It's been a heisenbug for several folks. We're just going to have to keep monitoring the situation very closely to spot it in action. Thanks for the nudge to do so.

    Thanks. And as oddly as it began it has ended with no email notifications
    to the comments I've made elsewhere yesterday (other diaries) or to the DB

    Right. So some transient condition, somewhere, seems to be interfering with the toggle. Maybe we'll gather enough information to be able to identify it soon. Thanks again.
