I don't understand why a few months ago I started getting e-mails when someone commented on a thread in which I've posted something. I've never asked for e-mail notifications. I did find a page where it seemed I could unsubscribe, which worked for a while at, but now I'm getting them again. Is there anything I can do permanently?

It should absolutely be permanent. I don't get *any* email notifications - is that what you wish? 

 

If yes, perform 1), 2), and 3a). If no, perform 1), 2), and 3b).

 

1) Click your name on the top-right of this screen

2) On the left side, click "Notification Options"

3a) Make sure the entire righthand column (the one for "Email") is unchecked.

3b) Make sure the entire righthand column (the one for "Email") is checked only for things you want to be notified about.

 

(Note also, the lefthand column in step 3) (the one for "Notification List") is an alternative method of being notified - it will notify you whenever you sign on by placing the items in the list activated by that little icon just to the left of your name in 1)). If both columns are checked, you'll receive both types of notifications.

 

There's no "evil robot" that goes around in the middle of the night undoing your settings, at least none that I know of! :)

Thanks, Don. I also found this little gem:

Topics & Posts

Auto follow topics I reply to. Notification frequency: (None)
You are automatically following all topics you reply to with no notification frequency selected. This will cause the topics to show in your followed content area, but you will not receive notifications for these topics.

 

I selected it and set notification frequency to "none" which seems to mean I won't get e-mails on topics I'm "following".

 

Thanks for your help, too.

On the slowness issue, just so you know I'm involved in a different forum that uses Invision Forum package.  It also has become very slow to load new posts.

This is a tough call, but I'm going to go ahead and make it. I'm not naming any names in the event that I'm wrong, but I've spent a fair amount of time researching this, and at this point I think it's appropriate to issue a warning to restaurateurs.

--

I believe there is - or should I say was - someone on this website posing as a terminally ill patient, hoping to get sympathy and free food.

She's supposedly "two weeks away from death," yet she's eating and drinking all over town. I've talked with people that have seen her, and she doesn't exactly look like she's on her last leg.

She isn't dying; she's merely dying for attention.

And read this for a brief description of what she most likely "has":

Munchausen By Internet

Yes, I feel sorry for this person, but not for the reason she wants me to.
Rocks.

 

The perpetrator is still in the area, and very active in the food world.

 

This was originally posted with a link that is definitive proof, but it would also destroy this person's life, and I have no desire to do that. If anyone wants more information, please write me privately.

 

God, I had forgotten all about this, and thinking about it again gives me the willies like you cannot believe.

 

I genuinely hope this person has gotten help.

Consider this Part Two of a warning to restaurateurs in the area (scroll up two posts for the full story on Part One):

 

I talked with Ferhat today, and he alerted me that some people have been calling the restaurant in College Park, saying they're the "Pepco Billing Department."

 

They're saying the service will be disconnected in a few hours if no money is received over the phone. 

 

Ferhat spoke with local police, and they mentioned that numerous restaurant owners have called to complain about the same thing - this is happening in College Park, Greenbelt, and Beltsville, but don't be surprised if it spreads. He also spoke with Pepco, and was told that they never call in person to ask for money; they only do it by mail or with an automated system.

 

If any restaurateurs get this, let your brethren know there are criminals at work.
