I've turned "Alerts" off, yet I'll get email notifications anyway, on a different (new) thread weeks later. For example, did this on my account on 4/3/18. But after I replied today (6/15) to a couple of threads, got the damn email notifications again ... and found that the Alerts setting page had EVERYTHING set as enabled for notification. Needless to say, the user preference settings are getting lost and/or not being saved. Just tried the "no emails" hyperlink that came on one of the email messages - I think that's what it required last time to be honored. Else all MR email notifications is going into my SPAM folder.
