I'm done with this thread after this.... Just because you get an alert, doesn't mean you have to run to the thread the alert is associated with. Just click on the alert notification and go on with your day. Unless you subscribe to the thread, or click on that little box about getting e-mail notifications, the alerts are completely non-intrusive. Unless there is a thread you have a particular interest in, just ignore them like the rest of us do. You're complaining about something that is a non-issue for anyone who has a life outside of this forum. Ignore the alerts an move on like a normal human being.
