    Stop Auto Subscribing Me!!!

    I don't want to subscribe to comments. Please stop auto-subscribing me. I'm not going to return to your blog unless I want to...

  2. Yeah I have noticed many blogs do that...i just uncheck...

    The check box is clear on my site, but this gets me to wondering what kind of comments or why are you commenting on blogs. Is it to simply get your link out there? When I make a comment, I always check the box when it's available. I want to know what others say, and it often gives me another opportunity to comment again (increasing my visibility).

    Let me ask you this. What is your default for the threads you comment on, on this forum? Are you set for auto subscribe? I am betting yes because you are interested. If you are just commenting on blogs, and have no real interest in the topic or care what others say than it seems to me you are simply commenting to spam.

    Trying to improve your website? Have you done an analysis yet?

  4. On blogs, I usually subscribe when I comment. Commenting means that I am joining the conversation, so I want to know when someone responds to me.

    On forums, I always subscribe to threads I reply to. On forums which I seldom visit, I add email notification.

    It's all about conversations.

    If I have an interest in continuing the conversation, then I just return to the post at a later date. I don't like subscribing for alerts. I never subscribe to threads, blogs, comments, etc.

    I do not comment just to get the link, but there are times when I just want to say "hey, that's kind of cool." and leave it at that. I don't want to hear about everybody that replied about the same thing being cool.

    It's a personal preference. I'd like to think that I leave good comments, and you can ask people to back me up on that.

    They are just following new tricks to get back old visitors again on their posts . It is helpful if you are reading on some good topics and discussion is going on in comments section . So by this you can stay updated with others comments and point of views . You can just click and uncheck the subscribe comment section button for not receiving updates . I also don't like this feature but if someone is trying hard to get visitors back then we must help him too .

    I don't mind so long as the email contains the conversation. I hate to return to the post only to read three versions of "nice post".

    That's not conversation worth delving into

    It's no trick and as stated I think more people appreciate it more than loathe it as you obviously do. Although, I think like everything, it depends on the content of the post. For example I have some reviews and information on my automotive blog where commenters are helping each other out to get money back from an online scamming company. Those who originally commented appreciate that they were automatically subscribed, to see how the tides have turned.

    Lastly, it's easy to uncheck a subscription. Furthermore, is your email that full that you can't just hit delete when a notification comes through?

  9. is it trick ??
    like auto subscibin??
