    Recently I've started getting "alerts" that someone has posted to a thread I had previously posted on. I wasn't "watching" the thread, I only posted on it. When I go back to the thread I have to manually "unwatch" it or continue to get alerts.
    So, it appears that the problem is anytime I post on a thread it automatically activates the "watch thread" feature.
    Is this a system glitch or have I inadvertently flipped the switch on some alert setting?

    That may be the default setting. Anytime I post, I automatically get notifications ongoing when others post. I don't recall specifically requesting that in my profile settings.

    Perhaps this server outage / migration / whatever it is caused non-default profile settings to be reset?
