Hello Jen,

Before I got to your note, I'd already deleted the notifications that were not "to me," so I'll have to wait until tomorrow - probably - before being able to follow your very clear instructions.  I'll be sure to let you know what I find.

Hope you having a good weekend!

Good afternoon (well, it's 4:32 PM here in the Mojave Desert of California) Jen,

I have checked the status of that star on every single one of the posts I get, and in none of them is it green.

This leads me to believe I have to "unfollow" each and every discussion when I receive further notifications.  However - in the event someone (such as yourself) posts to me, will I then receive notifications of such a post?

Thassall for now - -

UPDATED TO ADD:  I can't check "unfollow," because that box is not present when I click the star on notifications of posts not addressed to me.

Let me know when it happens again and the precise wording of the notification you get.

We'll figure this out.

Hello Jen -

Very well, here's the sequence.  It starts with a notification in my e-mail inbox: 

Delphi Forums

New reply in Coalition of the Confused  This particular one arrived this morning at 10:04 AM

When I clicked on that notification it brought me to:

When I click on "Read the message and others . . . , it takes me to that message in "Cam's Free City."  I can read the messages in that discussion, but they're not mine - so I don't.  Also, because I'm not following the discussion, I do NOT have the green star; it's white.  If I click on that star, I do NOT have the option to stop following the discussion, because I'm not following it...

This morning I deleted somewhere in excess of a dozen such "new reply" notifications.  I think I'm only supposed to be receiving notifications of messages "to me," but obviously that's not how it's working.  But I receive your messages just fine - - - no, I don't have a handle on this one just yet.

As for my computer, I use either of two.  One is an older AMD machine, a PC clone, running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.  The other machine is also a PC clone, using a Gigabyte motherboard and running Windows 10 Professional 64-bit.  They're both loaded with 16 GB of RAM.  The machine I'm using at the moment is the older one.

I hope this helps!

Take care,

We have found a solution!!

Thank you for cutting and pasting it all.  Now we have the answer, and instructions on what you need to do,

Good morning, Jen - -

Well, it's morning here in California's Mojave Desert, that is.  Clear, windy morning, maybe today we'll stay below 100 degrees F / 38 C, but I wouldn't bet on that.  Seems we're getting a bit more cool air coming into the valley than normal as weather changes along the coast - - -

Thank you for sending the instructions for unsubscribing.  I never subscribed to any forum; why suddenly Delphi thought I had will forever remain a mystery.  Yes, I followed the instructions and checked the red star, then confirmed the unsubscription, so maybe, hopefully, I won't be receiving dozens of notifications of messages not "to me."  We'll see.

But that doesn't mean that I won't welcome actual notes from you or others in your forum - - - I simply don't want to have to wade through other people's activity; to me that seems somewhat of an invasion of their privacy.  I'm old-school that way!

So thank you again, I truly appreciate the help!

Hopefully your week is going well.  Take care,

The wolf, of course, includes Communists, Socialists, anarchists, would-be tinpot dictators, and all the followers and enablers of that entire spectrum of destructive philosophy.  Their appetite for power is insatiable, their willingness to harm all who do not unquestioningly obey them is unlimited.  This multifaceted wolf is comparable only to a malignant, fast-growing cancer in the body politic.  And one can NEVER co-exist with such a cancer; one must do everything possible to kill it before it kills you.  Similarly, those who are part of this cancer must be removed from rational society, that such society may not perish from this Earth.

The wolf, as described above, must be hunted down wherever it may be found, and eliminated by whatever means prove necessary.  And make no mistake, there will be bloodshed.

Not a problem.

Delphi often throws out a confusing glitch to keep us all on our toes once a month.

Glad we fixed it!
