Being alerted to new posts by other people you follow is good, but being automatically subscribed to said posts is annoying.

There should either be a way to toggle or disable this behavior.

Bump.

This is so annoying.
Would it make sense to have it ask if you want to follow the post the first time you make a comment?

I believe the way most places do this, is they provide you a toggle:

By default: Always follow posts I'm part of | Only follow posts I author | Never follow posts automatically

And then provide a 'Follow this thread' button, that you can click on manually, in a thread.

This seems to cover everything.
