…but, how do I stop the comment feeds to my e-mail? I dearly love all your posts, and I especially dearly love reading them here on POV not my email account :)


Hey TJ!

I’m looking into that right now. This site is WordPress based and at this time, has no individual option for turning on and off, email notifications for comments made to your own posts.

It’s just one big site-wide on or off switch. Sorry about that! While I keep looking into this, here’s a poll for our membership to let us know if you do or don’t prefer to get an email notification when someone comments on your article:

[poll id=”18″]

BTW, all members can go in their Dashboard to “Profile” then “Subscriptions” to subscribe or unsubscribe to email notifications when new articles are published at The Planet.

    Hello everybody! I am so glad to find so many friends here! It may take me a little time to learn to navigate the site, but I’m working on it!

      Welcome to the planet, Emerald.

    • bitohistory says:

      Welcome Emerald, welcome to the civilized Planet. The discussions may get spirited but not personal. Many good people here. (and you can spell troll here and not get sent to your corner. :-) )
      Welcome !

      • Emerald1943 says:

        Wow! You mean I can actually type the word without using symbols or spaces? The moderation over there has gotten pretty intense. What really burns me is writing a good comment with no obscenities or bad stuff…and it never makes it onto the thread!

        LOL! I take my blogging pretty seriously! :-)

      • javaz says:

        Wouldn’t it be horribly boring if we all agreed on everything?
        I do like reading other points of view.
        Gives me something to think about and even change the way I view things, too.
        The best thing about PPOV are the members and the freedom we have to discuss and debate.

      Welcome to Planet POV, Emerald!

      Welcome, Emerald1943!

      You may find the planet a little slow right now while people are out and about. But we’ll be humming in a few hours.

      So good to see you here! Take a look around and make yourself at home.

      • Emerald1943 says:

        Thanks so much, nellie! It really is nice to see so many HP folks here. I am getting a little frayed with fighting the onslaught of tr0llies there. They seem to come in and take over a thread. Makes it really hard to have a reasonable conversation and debate about the issues.

        I’m looking forward to the “humming”! :=)

        • PepeLepew says:

          I agree, Emerald, the HuffPost forums are becoming increasingly creepy and even threatening. And the inaccurate headlines drive me crazy.

          • Emerald1943 says:

            Hey Pepe! Great to see you here! What is it with those headlines anyway? Is it just to get extra clicks? The story today about Baucus is a prime example of promoting a “non-story” and putting it up in HUGE red letters on the main thread.

            Now, I have a question…where do we go to comment on other issues? I’m having a little trouble getting around on this site.

            • PepeLepew says:

              Though I’m from Montana, so I actually care about Baucus. Just shows you about the guy’s character. I agree that ultimately it really isn’t an important story.

              There’s a bunch of tabs at the top of the page that link to numerous postings and articles. I’ve written a couple. I am going to try to write one or two a month. The other people are better than me about talking about politics. I consider myself more of a learner.

            • AdLib says:

              Emerald1943, welcome to The Planet!!!

            • Emerald1943 says:

              No, no, no, my friend! You are no “learner”. I’ve been reading your stuff for a long time and you’re usually dead on it!

        • nellie says:

          We are definitely the place for real conversation. If you look through some of the stories, you’ll see, we can get deep into things here!

          If there’s a particular issue you’d like to write something about, please feel free.

  3. Kalima says:

    I sleep for only five hours to come here and see so many new faces, wonderful.

    Welcome to our Planet and thanks for being here. Hope you decide to stay.


    P.S. AdLib, I haven’t had those emails for months, was it something I said?? :)

  4. FeloniousMonk says:

    Hey TJ, and adlib: If your mail system allows filters, build one for from = [email protected] and subject beginning with [PlanetPOV]. Most any other stuff coming out of PlanetPOV has either a different sender ID or the subject is different.

    Then you can send it to whereever you’d like, another folder, the bit bucket, ect.

    Just a potential workaround recommendation. Or, just do it the manual way once a day and move or delete them, that’s what I do.

    Hello Everyone!

    You’re not the only “newbie”, Tom. I’ve been a lurker for a while (thanks to KK, who told me about this great site), but I usually spend most of my time “reading” here, because there are a lot of great writers here. Wow! Good stuff. (Sidenote to PepeLepew: I really enjoyed your contribution about “blogging”.)

    An extra special “thank you” for the invite (on one of HP’s threads last night). I tried to reply to your comment, on that peachy message board, but the thread was deleted. Gasp! Imagine that?!

    This is a very nice Planet.? Good to see so many familiar faces.

    • AdLib says:

      A very warm welcome, TanzaniteDiamonds!

      Happy to have you on The Planet!

    • escribacat says:

      Hello Tanz! Nice to see you here. Please don’t let anything prevent you from posting here — self-censorship would be worse than HP censorship!

      • TanzaniteDiamonds says:

        Thanks for such a quick reply, escribacat. That’s very kind of you. Don’t worry. I’m just kind of a shy person, when it comes to “writing”. I know? Hard to believe I’m “shy” with all of those YouTubes on HP, isn’t it? lol! Don’t let those fool anyone. I “read” and “absorb” a lot of comments, from many posters. I just don’t always respond, accordingly.

        Overall, I’m impressed at some of the really dynamic personalities I’ve seen at HP — but like so many of you — I’m also dismayed at amount of personal attacks, trolls out of control, and constant scrubbings. The hassle with the YouTube links also really irks me, but I won’t “go there”.

        Escribacat, I must also say that I enjoy many of your comments (your cat stories are adorable).

        Actually, I’ve learned a lot from SO many of you here at the Planet. Again, I say “thank you”.


        • escribacat says:

          Thanks, Tanz. I wonder why they messed with the youtube links. Obviously it makes it more difficult to do — but not impossible. I don’t get the point.

    • TanzaniteDiamonds says:

      Please note: My “smiley face” comes up as “a period and question mark” instead of the “smiley face” (in my last sentence), that I entered on the screen. When I typed it, it showed up as a “smiley face” on my monitor. But here on the board, it shows up as question mark. Hmm?? I’m sorry about that.

      Please don’t mistake my unintended question mark. I meant it as “happy moment” in my writing to you. Especially, since I was saying what a nice Planet this is.

      Thank you in advance.

    Scroll down the page to META and chose Dashboard. From there go to profile and chose subscriptions and deselect all the topics you don’t want email notifications about (in your case ALL of them) and then click on update preferences. Or at least try all that and see if it works.

  7. Tom_Joad says:

    …I also don’t know what all the gibberish at the end of my last post was…LOL

    • TanzaniteDiamonds says:

      LOL TJ! Check it out? There’s an “edit” button here, too. How fabulous is that!? *Happy Dance* from me to you.


      • Emerald1943 says:

        Hey Tanz! I saw that little “edit” button and was soo pleased. there have been scads of times that I wanted to take something back or correct spelling when I was on HP.

    • choicelady says:

      You mean that was NOT cryptographic evidence you are either a CIA operative or an outer space alien? Rats. It was sort of interesting.

    • Mogamboguru says:

      You are relieved. You know, it’s only, because you are a newb… 😉
