Is this just user error, or have the default Thread Watch settings changed?

All of a sudden I've started getting emails for two threads I've participated in. I'm getting regular emails when new posts appear, but I don't recall turning this on. I've since unwatched them and the emails have stopped.

Did I somehow do this inadvertently, or has some forum setting changed?

I just checked my settings. Yes, I have the automatically watch threads option checked but I do NOT have the receive email notifications option checked.

Nonetheless, I suddenly got a whole bunch of emails, until I unwatched those threads. I don't recall checking the receive email notifications option for those threads either, and it happened with two different threads, not just one, on the same day.

Weird. Anyway, all is fine now after I completely stopped watching those threads.
