    Do you not follow comments in hubpages to avoid the emails?

    I hate having so many emails and so tend to not follow forums and other places I visit on the web.  Is it worth following all the places you comment on hubpages and any negatives aside from missing someone responding to your question?

    In a way, yes. Worth it... if you are open to new learning or discovery. You wouldn't know when would a witty answer or post would come out. But of course, that's just my opinion.

    I follow all of the things I post on (hubs, forums, answers, etc.), however, I adjusted my email settings so they just show on my feed and do not email me every time someone posts on something I follow.

    Hi, you can turn off emails on forums, hubs, etc. you need to go to your account, select profile then email settings and you can adjust to suit you.  I have the 'digest' on 'auto' and have selected 'never' for mobile phone messages then chosen my preferences for instant email either 'never' or 'always'. There is also an 'auto' in this section for most things.  So you can receive as many emails as you want or none at all or just select the ones you want to  receive.

    Hope this helps.

    I just turned off email for forums, questions, etc. because I was getting 100 emails a day.  I also stopped participating in the forums because I found they were not really worth my time there.  If I post a hub or comment on a hub I usually follow it at least for a time.

    I usually don't follow unless I know it's a hot topic and want to discuss it with the other hubbers.

    It is possible to set your email preferences to daily digest and then you only get one email a day. I used to be swamped by emails while still wanting to read comments when the hubs were new. Now I don't get lost trying to find non-Hubpages email messages A However, the comments will still show up on my home page feed.

    No, I have it set up so I get one notice from Hubpages which includes notices about the comments on Hubs and Questions I follow.

    I rarely get unwanted mail.

    You can change how you receive notices in your "My Account" settings. Choose "Profile" and then, in the box on the left, choose "E-mail Settings".

    There you can choose to get instant mail when different things are done. You can also choose to include it in a single digest notification or not at all.

    It makes it easier to keep your in-box clear of unwanted clutter and gives you a little more control over your Hubpages experience.

    Best wishes!

    I follow what I have participated in for a while. I always want to see fresh answers to questions I have answered, new comment or reply by the author on a hub I commented on and new forum posts. I will follow the forum for a while but will unfollow the hub and questions after a few days. When the forum gets boring I 'll unfollow it then.

    I get a lot of these emails but I prefer it that way so I don't have to scroll through a long list in my daily digest. I prefer just to read hubs from the daily digest rather than checking old stuff.
