  1. When I originally left a comment I seem to
    have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and from now on every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment.

    Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

      Hi. That must be frustrating! At the bottom of the email you receive, there is a button to either “unsubscribe” or “manage subscriptions.” You might need to “unsubscribe” and then “resubscribe” to stop these. I don’t see a way that I can edit your settings. Hope that helps.
