Don't email comments and I mean it!

Don't email comments and I mean it!

Short, concise description of the idea
If you check "Don't email comments" on a particular entry, it only disables comments made to the original post, but not comments made to other comments. I would like to be able to disable this.

Full description of the idea
Currently, if you don't want to receive emailed comments, you can turn off the option by entry. This is especially helpful if you want to leave on the message board notifications for other journals you comment in. However, the only comments that aren't emailed are replies directly to the post. Any replies to other replies are sent. I think it would be appropriate to have no emails sent when this option is checked off.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Able to disable by entry in your own journal, but leave notifications on for communities you might reply in
  • If you don't want to receive them anyway, wouldn't that relieve some tension on the email servers?
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Some people might like this feature, so in order for it to work for just some an admin console command or extra check box might need to be coded.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • There are essentially two ways to have this implemented, it could be site wide or it could be by user, so the first thing to do would be to decide which way would be easier, but at the same time not alienate people who might be using this.
  • Coding and such.
