Default thread watching option when replying to a thread

Whenever I reply to a thread, I find that I start getting email notifications for future posts in the thread. I have to manually change this by unwatching the thread, and again watch it without receiving emails notifications.

Is there a way I can change this default option, such that when I reply to any thread, then I automatically start watching it without email notifications?

Yes. Just uncheck the box for getting email notifications on threads you have replied to in preferences.

With the mobile skin, My PF, then Preferences. The first option is

Automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply...​

which has a sub-option:

and receive email notifications of replies​

Uncheck the second one.
