What is with the notify crap?

By ITgirli ·
Anytime I go to post, at the end I get the little notification box. Is there a way to set the default to the unchecked position? As fast as people post here, I don't want a billion emails bogging down my email account for junk mail. If I want notification, wouldn't one reason that I could just pop back over and look for it? Are we really that lazy of a people? (Apparently since I don't want to take the extra trouble to uncheck a box everytime I post) But sometimes I don't scroll to the bottom to even notice the box and then ....oops, crap in my email account. And when did this box rear it's ugly little head anyhow? I would swear that I don't remember it being there a week ago. I just scrolled down and AH! there it is again. NO. NO. NO. Could one of you guys help me eradicate the monster?

Well you could always go to

My Discussions and click on the remove so you don't get notified of these additions to the different threads during the day if you forget to uncheck the box.

I can not see it as a big deal either way it saves the extra step of subscribing to a discussion and after all at the most 4 e-mails per day isn't a great deal but if you are really adversely affected then just unsubcribe for the discussions it's as easy as that.

check boxes

by charlie In reply to Feature vs. your e-mail u ...

Why can't the check box be marked if you want the e-mails instead of assuming you want them. It really would be simple to re-write the page and change it to be marked if you want the e-mail.

All the sites now assume you want as much e-mail as they can possibly generate. Why?

I AM nice

by M_a_r_k In reply to Mark!

unless people aren't nice to me. He said good riddance if I leave TR so I jabbed back. The train driver comment was too good to pass up. I haven't been "unnice" lately, have I?

At least be honest about it

by Oz_Media In reply to Mark!

There's no such thing as a NICE GUY, well not one that got anywhere in life anyway.

I am at least honest about it, I AM a nice guy, for an a$$hole.

As far as a$$holes go, I'm a pretty good one. No sense in trying to lie to people about it.

work email addresses

by jdclyde In reply to I hate it!

Get yourself a yahoo/hotmail/gmail account, and use that as your registered email.

You can then set it to forward into your work mail, giving you much more control over what does and doesn't hit your work email.

Very few EVER register with a work email address. I know I don't.

If you want a gmail account, let me know and I can send you an "invite".

I have multiple addresses, so I can kill any one of them if needed. Also, if I start getting spam, I will have an idea who sold my address.

So far, only spam I get is from other members wanting to share a million dollars with me. But as I have no interest in worldly posessions, I had to turn them down.
