    Could such a feature be implemented so that we can unfollow comments on blog entries? It sometimes gets annoying when you are spammed with notifications about a blog entry and can't stop them from coming through.

    I've seen this requested a few times on active blog entries from annoyed people but I'm not sure if anyone's actually published a thread about it here.

    Thanks.

    You can unwatch blogs

    But if someone tags you, you will still get notified. If you reply, you will have to unwatch the blog again.

    It actually took me a few seconds to look around for it. So don't beat yourself up over it, it's kind of hard to notice even for vets ^_^

    I highlight the part that confused me.
    Don't reply to the devil's letter even if you are tagged or you will be cursed again.

    Yeah, you reply to any blog that you unwatched, you will be watching it again. I feel like that shouldn't the be case, but it is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    I really think there should be option to turn off the auto-watch on blogs.
    Just checked, you can however turn off alarms from watched threads. So you won't get notified when someone replies in a thread you are watching. So there's that, it's under the "alert-preferences" in your preferences.

    Every time I reply to a blog, I immediately refresh the page and click unwatch blog.
    It became a standard routine now.

    Like a Pro. But it takes time to become a Pro. You have to get used to it, and first of all you have to realize what the hell is happening.

    I got annoyed by the auto follow and just decided to do that.
    Don't really call it skills ;p but cheers.
