I suddenly started receiving email notifications every time someone responds to one of my comments. I havenever had that before (in14 years of participation) and want it to stop. How can I turn off that function?

    I am having this same problem too:

    "receiving email notifications every time someone responds to one of my comments."

    I think it's related to recent programming changes on the site -- perhaps the Banner changes, (This content is not subject to review by Daily Kos staff)

    I've tried enabling/disabling the "email notifications" setting in my Profile, but the notification are still flooding my email account.

    Please fix this. Thanks

    It appears you must uncheck the email box every time you make a comment.

    This is the opposite of the desired behavior if, like me, you have set profile to never send emails on comments.

    Please default that email checkbox to 'unchecled" so I don't have to remember to uncheck it every single time.

    Thank you.

    This problem started yesterday. Suddenly receiving email notification of response to my comments.
    I looked at my setting and email response was unchecked so I should not be getting any.
    This happened to me once before. It really is annoying and unnecessary as I visit Kos several times a day.
