    How does one unsubscribe from a thread?

    LOT of emails from some threads come through & I'd like to check manually without email notification.

    "Thread tools" only shows option to "subscribe" to a thread I'm already subscribed to.

    Click on that option, a new page will open and there will be a pull down menu which will default to your default profile setting but you can select "No email notification" and then click on Add Subscription which will replace the previous.

    Alternatively, each notification e-mail you receive will have a link you can click on to unsubscribe from the thread ("To unsubscribe from this thread, please visit this page"). There is also one to unsub from all threads so make sure you click the right one :D

    Edit: also you can of course change your global setting, it's in your profile under "edit options / thread subscriptions" and then manually subscribe (instant, daily, weekly) on a per-reply basis, or leave it as is and manually unsubscribe on a per-reply basis. There is a "thread subscription" pull-down below the area where you enter your reply, change it before you click "submit reply".
