Many pages of "Watched" Threads

I learned how to check a listing of my watched-threads, and there are 13 pages of threads I have marked To Watch. Some or plenty of them have become old, and being old, people are unlikely to respond to the old threads. As I think about this, I can choose to stop watching an thread which becomes old, but then in case somebody does respond, no alert would occur. Dilemma - hard to choose to throw out the Watch or keep the Watch.

Looking at it that way, I should and now plan to go through the list of my Watched-threads and mark the very old ones (more than one year old) to Unwatch.
