I disabled email notifications on everything, and I haven't received anything until today, when I had like 100 friggin emails sent to me like one every few minutes; what gives? I have enabled notifications, like if somebody responds to a comment I've made it tells me in the box in the upper right hand corner, but it never gave me emails until now.

Can you send me a few examples of those emails please?

@edgework: they're all being sent from donotreply@gamespot.com, and they're all regarding an article I posted in today, it joins me to the conversation and automatically and I get an email for every damn post in the article, email basically consists of so-in-so said and then a body of their comment, then it says something about changing settings, but all emails are disabled, I just have notifications selected but again emails are disabled, I see notifications usually when people comment on my forum posts in the upper right hand corner of the screen but I don't get emails for them, and I don't get any notifications for the stuff I get emailed on.

^are these emails for comments from a livefyre comment stream (the ones attached to blogs/site news/reviews/etc rather than on the forums) on the site then? Those settings would be stored in a separate database so if it's only those causing issues then that narrows down the cause significantly.

Yes, it's livefyre. You comment on an article, you automatically are subscribed to it. You have to manually unsubscribe every time you comment because every comment in an article starts the emails.

Is there a way not to get anything through that LiveFyre system? I'd like to be able to comment on articles without the fear or hassle of dealing with constantly needing to go to my email to disable the LiveFyre conversation... and WTF guys?! seems like you all know about all this and don't want to fix it.
