Receiving notifications

I'm confused. When I start a new thread or if someone responds to one of my questions, I get an email notifying me of that. Fine. But recently I made a comment to another thread (By Any Other Name) and although there are no responses directly to mine, every time someone posts another comment to the thread I get an email telling me so -- something like 20 of them in the last week alone! I looked at my settings and I only have checked to enable responses to MY posts. What's going on?

    If you reply to any thread, you'll get the notification.

      Correct you are notified of any activity of any thread you have participated in, irregardless if its directed at you.

        If you don't want those emails, hit the little yellow star at the top and turn it gray. No more emails!

          Ah, there's the answer I was looking for -- how not to get notifications on threads you've commented on but still get notifications for your own thread. Thanks Hobbert.
