SO it's happening again today. I deleted several of them. Get satisfaction posts that are weeks to months old in my email.Many have never been responded to.Some have.
As the title suggests, this happens every 2 months or less.

It shouldn't.

It's a problem, I like getting notified of new assistance requests.

Most of the ones that are a month old, are probably irrelevant at this point.

It's irritating to receive these e-mails.

Suggested Solution.................. FIX IT

I Deleted several such e-mails already. I'm wondering how many will come before days end.

I had a couple like this this morning but nothing like your list. One was 4 days old and I had never seen the original (or I would have posted the fix) A lot of what I got today were motives of merged topics.

Here's an update on this. We know why it happened. One of my coworkers went through and added or corrected the categories for posts -- Camtasia Windows, Snagit Mac, etc. So what we learned, is that we didn't know that these changes would send a notification to anyone subscribed to the thread.

I think that Rick's solution is probably the best way to cope with this.

I'll probably open a suggestion with Get Satisfaction that they allow for more granular control over notifications. I don't know if it will go anywhere, but I can at least try (;

The thing that always scares me about delete filter is ... you might miss something important. Filtering to another folder then going through them quickly is a sit safer.

If I got an email with "has been added to the category" AND "Techsmith wants to give you $1 million ... I would sure hate to mnis it

Well  thanks Glen, at least I know what going on.

I like keeping up on threads so option out is not an option.

 Armed with the knowledge of what's going on, is good enough for me. You do things to
