    Receiving an email because someone used the quote feature in a reply

    I just received and email telling me that someone quoted me in TF. Turns out that all someone did was use the "reply with quote feature" in a thread. I never noticed this happening before but would like to suggest it be changed. This can become darn annoying and a waste of my email bandwidth.

    You might want to check your for what you are alerted to. It should be in your profile settings. This never happens with me.

    I have checked all my settings and do not see it as an option. I have email notifications of threads set to off. That is the only thread option I see. if someone can find it please point me to where it is.
    Thank you

    You might want to try contacting adnedarn. He's the site moderator and should know how to fix it.
