Why is the default for most forums to send you email notifications for EVERY response?

    This is insanely irritating. Your inbox is flooded with useless notifications by default until you root through the settings page to turn them off

    I've no idea, but it is annoying. I created filters, so all such emails go straight to the trash and I never see them.

    When you reply to a thread you have the choice at the bottom to "Watch this thread" via check box + via check box "...and receive email notifications". Don't check the email notification box and it won't happen.

    True on this forum, many are by default set to notify you through email
