Monday after the Game of Thrones Red Wedding reveal, I read a Rolling Stones piece where the author had no clue the song played was the Rains of Castemere, the title of the episode. So, of course, I had to point out that oversight. (Someone on the Internet was WRONG!)
The commenting system RS used is Disqus, which I am using here, so no problem. Until I get the flood of emails. I had been holding steady at 2.1GB of my 10.1GB at Gmail. All the emails to this thread bumped it up to 2.3GB.
So I went looking for how to stop it. There was no list of posts to which I am subscribed like at WordPress.com. The only relevant place to fix this seemed to be the profile editor and “Email notifications are sent when comments are posted on discussions that matter to you.” That would stop all comment notifications not just the busy one annoying me. I even deleted my comment which did not stop them.
Finally, I sucked it up and went into the help and found the Subscribe/Unsubscribe from Notifications page. It turns out, I had to go to the page and click on the “Subscribe via email” link at the bottom of the comment box. Pretty sure I never would have thought to look there on my own.
