I just noticed the new option at the end of the new comment alerts.  When did that start showing up? 

--- Unsubscribe from notifications for this post

This is useful for those times when you get swamped with way too many emails, which often happens when you comment on a great post by some of the blogging overachievers here like.....

I haven't yet tried it, but I will because I'm the curious type.  I think this is a great new feature

UPDATE - I don't know about you all, but it seems to take 3 tries before it works. 

Thanks again ActiveRain, you guys rock!  Thanks to Imagechef.com for the cute picture.

It has been there for awhile. It is there if you have suscribed to a persons post and want to unsubscribe.  Hope this helps!  8-)

There has always been a Subscribe / Unsubscribe button just over the posters picture for the blog - at least it's been there as long as I've been a member.  I have yet to see the Unsubscribe from notifications.  Is this so you can stop getting notified everytime someone else comments after you've checked the "Notify me of new comments:: box?

 I saw it just the other day...maybe it was there before, but I remember we had to go back into the post and uncheck the notify me box.....this is so much easier, and saves time too :) :)  Thanks....

It works, but you have to be logged in if it's members only.

this is a good thing - as Martha says

I'm not seeing where it is. I must be missing it. If I get tired of the comments, I always go back in and update my comment to uncheck the box. Just clicking a link would be a lot faster. Ok - I'm going to save this comment and see if I see it.

Angie - you'd be better off testing it with a more active thread.  lol 

I don't expect a lot of action over here.  I'm still testing it out myself, and I like it.

On second thought, it appears to not be working that well.  I have "unsubscribed" from one post 3 times now and they still come....?

Anyone else have some input?

I've just set up a separate folder in my e-mail account that captures all my Activerain New Comment e-mails. I get all the updates I want, but avoid the full inbox problem that you describe. It is pretty easy to set up depending on your e-mail service, but most have this feature and can be done in less than 5 minutes.

Todd,  that might be a better idea!  Thanks.  It seems that the unsubscribe button is not that effective.

Nancy - lol - I think the "button" needs some work - I find I have to click it more than once on some occasions.  At least there's not 100 comments here, so it's not too painful.  haha

Nancy, if you have any pull with the gods, please let them know.  I thought I'd give it a few more days and see what happens.  It seems to work some of the time.
