WordPress: Since this (email notification for comments) feature went live we’ve had a bunch of feedback and it looks like following comments by default is not a good fit for a lot of bloggers (and their readers) after all.

We looked at a few different options, but for now we’ve just changed things back to how they were before. To follow a conversation, make sure you check the box when you post a comment.

So, I’ve restored the option under comments (which I disabled to stop the flood of emails you were all receiving) – if you want email notification of replies to your comments, just click the box (see below).
