    I've been getting email alerts for some watched threads even when the option is set to "without receiving email notifications". Has anybody else seen this?

    EDIT: I've just confirmed that un-watching and then re-watching doesn't resolve the issue.

    @Crungy: I forgot I posted this. The work-around I've found is to click either the "disable emails from this thread" or the "disable all emails" link in the notification email.

    I've been getting these on and off on a weekly basis for the last year, too. I just mark as read and throw in trash bin since I refuse to have any unread notifications. Will check out your workaround next time I get one.

    The downside is that it's like periodic maintenance. You have to do it from time to time.

    I noticed a couple days ago I started getting emails again. Not a ton, but some. Oh well.
