Notifications: opt out of automatically-checked "email" notification option

Notifications: opt out of automatically-checked "email" notification option

Short, concise description of the idea
The most recent LJ code release, described here http://community.livejournal.com/lj_releases/16643.html , added the following: "Subscribing to an entry/thread will automatically check off the "Email" notification option"

People should be able to opt out of this automatic check-off.

Full description of the idea
90% of the time I don't want e-mail notifications of actions, I want them in my LJ inbox. Having to uncheck the e-mail box each time is annoying.

People should be allowed to opt out of having the e-mail box automatically checked.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Save time and reduce annoyance for people who prefer the inbox over e-mail notifications.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • On the "manage message settings" page, have a separate section to specify default settings.
  • As a second choice, create an opt-out command for the admin console.
