    Is there any way to make the default when posting in a thread not to subscribe? My email inbox gets clogged with all these new post notifications because I always forget to uncheck the box for subscribing. I check back here every day, I don't need the thread subscriptions to find out whether there's new posts or not.

    Try this:

    User CP > Edit Options > Default Thread Subscription Mode (In Messaging & Notification).

    Change mode to "Do not subscribe"

    Or you can still subscribe but turn off the e-mail notification. Also in the edit options page.

    I use this. It's much less annoying. This way, you can still keep track of interesting threads, but PF won't bug you with emails.
