    Ok so I have bought this up with Gav in the past but now I am throwing it out there to all of you.

    I will state I am writing this as Green the forum user and NOT Green the Moderator.

    The one thing I truly LOATH on this site is the email notifications, for every single little thing.

    Yes you can turn them off by clicking 'unfollow' every single time you look at a post but why?

    Many of the posts on here are chit chat, bit of banter etc and don't need to be 'followed' to the point where I get an email that says 'daveyboy decided to click like on a post that Steve Garwood wrote that you once looked at briefly for two seconds'

    Ok a bit of exaggerated extreme example but you get my point.

    Gav, please change it so we don't follow every post we look at and leave it to us to decide which we WANT to follow instead of it being an automatic assumption.

    I have made this a Poll so you can have your say, please vote honestly.

    Rant over.

    I won't be tinkering.
    It takes but a couple of clicks to turn this on/off site wide. ;)

    I think I sent all mine to junk about 2 years ago. I prefer to just use tap talk and jump on now and then.

    Couldn't agree more with you Green. All my notifications from this forum go straight into my spam folder cos like Green says - its bloody annoying. Gav mate do the right thing and disable it
