Could just setup a separate folder that automatically redirects anything that comes from here; then you can always do a cursory scan and empty the folder quickly while leaving the inbox uncluttered.

There is a button at the top of the page: A green “Watch” or a red “Un-watch” type of thingy. Click on it to unwatch a thread.

As for what a friend does, just “un-friend” them, E-mails will stop….

Go to your Lumberjocks home page, and click on “Edit email notifications” on the left side of the screen, and you can select what emails you get.

You have to remove them from you buddy list. Then you won’t get their e mail notices!

You have 86 buddies. I’ll bet you get a ton of E mails like I do! I kinda like ‘em!

These are the email notification choices:

Email me when I receive a new private message.
Email me when somebody adds me to his / her buddies.
Email me when new comments / replies are posted to the items I’m watching.
Email me when my buddies post new content.
Email me when my project makes it to Daily Top 3.

So as you can see you have a lot of choices on what emails you get, and it is not necessary to un-buddy someone just to not get the emails.
