What the hell is it with the sudden burst of people using the comment subscription tick box (plugin?) with WordPress? Is it really that prosperous for a website owner to have it automatically ticked? Does it benefit anyone? Do I care what other people are saying on your website? No, no, no! I really do not care what your sheep are repeating, please do not subscribe me to your comments.
That’s probably the most angry and aggressive sounding paragraph I’ve churned out in a while but I am getting seriously annoyed with leaving a comment and not noticing until after I’ve added it that I now seem to be subscribed.
Sure, I could pay more attention, but do I honestly have the time to inspect a page each time I want to say something? No, I do not. I’m a busy woman. I have things to do, blogs to read, websites to run etc.. I don’t want to have to go through the hassle of un-subscribing myself to sod knows how many blogs each and every week because someone decided it was a good idea to automatically select a checkbox.
