I know we can "stop following hubs" by clicking that option on the email notification etc. but what about hubs that we don't get email notifications for. In my notifications on site "Top 20 Female Singers of All Time" is continually showing up. I did read this hub once and comment but no longer wish to be notified about it, however it never appears in my email notifications so I don't have an option to unfollow it. Any suggestions?
You should be able to unfollow on the hub itself, John. Go to the bottom of the comments section and see if you are given that option.
At the very least you should be able to uncheck "follow comments on this hub" (or however it's worded).
Thanks, Shauna. I never realised that "unfollow" button was just above the comments.
If you go here in your account
you'll see the list of all the hubs you're currently following and then you can unfollow the ones you don't like anymore. There's no way to sort it, unfortunately, but you can use "Ctrl +F" to find the title.
Thanks for that CG. I managed to delete a lot that I didn't realize I was still following.
But, you may not know whether you unfollowed all unwanted hubs or not until you get a notification or email. But, whenever you receive the notification even after a year or more, you can click the 'unfollow" button by opening the hub. It is always available there whenever you are signed in to HP.
Hark, John! I just realized that even after we unfollow hubs, notifications will be there always (not emails) if once you comment on a hub. So, you can't avoid notifications unless you opt out from notifications forever. I didn't find any option to opt out from notification for a particular hub after a certain period.

It seems that some people stop reading comments left at a hub after the hub author has responded to whatever comment they've left. This is only a guess because I've read some people's comments (other than the author's...

I noticed recently after I followed someone in error, that I couldn't stop following them. Is this a new feature that when we follow another hubber, it's for ever now? Because this function is not working!

In my years on this site I have seen so many people randomly follow me in hopes that I follow them back. And then as soon as I do, if the topics they write on interest me, they delete me from the hubbers they're...

We recently made an improvement to how notifications are handled on comments on your Hubs. If you would like to receive a notification when someone comments on your Hub, you will now need to "follow"...
