A few weeks ago I turned off all notifications. As of about 20 minutes ago, I'm now getting notified with every new post and I haven't changed any of my settings.

I may have discovered why I have been getting notifications. While I haven't intentionally been automatically "following" anyone, the system had me "following" around 20 people. I went to each page an indicated 'stop following' and I'll let you know if that corrected the situation.

I removed all but two folks from those that I am following and, i think, that i removed all my tracking and following of groups, but am still getting emails by the score.

Since I just received an email about your post, obviously I didn't turn everything off. I apparently did turn most off, but on each thread, there is a "stop tracking" icon. Possibly that only comes on when one creates a discussion, but I discovered that I was unintentionally following numerous people.

It appears that the tracking of individual threads is at least automatically turned on by replying to a post as well.

Definitely have to figure out how to ensure that doesn't happen. Plus, this particular community, doesn't appear along with the other communities like it used to. I think that should be changed, especially if I can figure out how to stop all of the emails.

I think that I am making progress on the e-mails. I have stopped following everyone, stopped tracking everything, and stopped following the communities. Now I am only getting emails for those threads that I have started or replied to. Those I have to stop individually.
Given all the features that I had to turn off, it seems to negate the value of the upgrade which gave us those features.
