How to disengage from a thread?
« on: Saturday 02 July 11 09:43 BST (UK) »

If I have contributed a reply to a thread and later do not wish to be notified of new additions to that thread, how can I sever that link, please?

You can certainly turn off notifications for a thread but it will still appear in Show new replies to your posts. at the top of the page.
Please do NOT ask for lookups by Personal Message.
