When one has made a comment on someone's hub, one is subsequently notified of all future comments. On hp, one could just say unfollow, but this option doesn't seem to be available on the niche sites.
I don't want to do my general settings to 'no notifications,' because I like to follow some. But if one has been following something for a few years, then, well, one doesn't really want to follow it anymore.
I think he is a spammer/scammer. He posted the same message on a couple of other topics that had nothing to do with the subject. I would delete and report.
When you get the email notification, isn't there a sentence that says, "To stop following this Hub, click here"?
I believe you can go back to the top of the comment section on the hub and unfollow that hub. I think you also have the option to choose not to follow it when you make the comment.
You're right, we don't have that good old unfollow button on the niche sites. But there is another way out.
Once you posted your comment, and you've received the author's reply (this wait time is optional of course ), go to this link:
You basically have directly gone to
Following --> Articles You Follow
(Following is the sixth and the last tab on your dashboard. Or shall I say, the home page for "my account")
Notice the checkbox at the top? It is selected by default. You could deselect it, but then you won't be notified of the author's reaction to your comment on their article.
Next, you have all the articles you are currently following. These include the articles you have written. Just click on the Unfollow button, for each article you want to unfollow, and you are good.
Attaching a screenshot too.
Hope that helped.
Very helpful I just wish they'd make it easy to unfollow from the articles themselves - seems like a pretty basic thing.
Yeah, that is more intuitive, but see it from this angle: You want to unfollow, say, five articles. You don't have to visit the article page and can unfollow from this single page. These buttons don't redirect or try to open another page, and no confirmation required either. You just have to be careful, that you don't accidentally unfollow your own articles. Although, if that happens, you can click on the follow button again - the article you have unfollowed continues to show on this page unless you refresh it.
There's another way. If you receive email notifications, there is a unfollow button next to each article, but that will take you to a confirmation page, and you have to unfollow separately from each article. I think the former method is easier and faster

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...
