  18. When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?

    Many thanks!

    be a taboo subject but generally people do not discuss such topics.
    To the next! Kind regards!!
