Help! Automatically watching threads??? Watch

    This is so annoying. I can't figure out how to change my settings do that I don't automatically "watch" every thread that I've posted in. I can unwatch them, but how do I stop them being added to my watch list in the first place? I'm probably missing something blindingly obvious here.

    Ah great, I was having this problem too - I just thought people were just used to it, I'm currently watching ~130 threads
    I get emails non-stop about them
