    I've been getting occasional notices of comments by Hubbers whose hubs I've commented on.  Same with forum posts.  Could we have this feature turned 'off' by default instead of 'on'.  This could tend to fill up one's (already crammed) inbox rather quickly if you're an active commenter, if it's 'on' by default.

    I find it easier just to check my Hubtivity each day, since I visit at least once a day anyway.

      Hi Timorous,

      Yes, we recently changed the default behavior of the checkbox to be "on" instead of "off".

      However, the site will remember the last value that you selected.  So in your next hub comment, simply uncheck the box.  The next time that you comment, it will be off by default.

      The same is true for forum posts.

        Thanks Ari.  Can I assume this is a global choice, or is it a hub-by-hub choice...?

          It is a global choice.

    Additionally, for the edit feature of a comment, can we also edit the email notification?

    I just tried unsuccessfully to edit a comment to turn on the email notification and wasn't given the opportunity.

      This is a good point.  It looks like we missed this case.  I will add it to my task list.

      This has been fixed in development, and it will go out with the next site update.

    I have been getting this as well, personally I don't like the change, If I really want to keep up to date on a thread I will check it, this is pretty rare however. 

    I would be interested in knowing if there was a majority check on people who used this feature before it was changed to a default.

    Having the option is good, but i would rather not have to keep receiving emails every time my cookie expires.

    Would it be possible to make this an option in our edit profile settings?
