Sorry for getting off topic, but is there anyway to remove yourself from a thread so I don't receive notifications anymore? I don't see the option.
@netnothing: I hope you don't mind, but I'm splitting off this comment into its own discussion since I'm sure others can benefit from having this same question answered as well. Ironic, I know.
While it isn't possible to turn off notifications for individual discussions, you can avoid getting them just because there's a new comment in a discussion you've participated in at some point:
That way you can still get notifications when people @ -mention you in particular, or when there are comments in discussions you've started yourself. Or you can tweak the other options to suit your taste. Cheers!
