I wonder why I am suddenly getting notifications about boards I am watching, when I haven't even read or looked at any of the topics mentioned or asked for notifications. Any ideas why? I tried to turn off the request for notifications like this, but they still keep coming!

if you look to the right of the 'new post' button when viewing those boards, does it say notify or unnotify?

Thanks red shoe.
I don't see that button for some reason. I guess I'm looking in the wrong spot.

I just got a notification about a thread on this board, the one about name calling and venting, and I hadn't even read that thread. This has happened several times in the last 2 weeks....I will get a notification to a thread that I haven't even looked at.
Is it just a computer error or is it possible that someone is logging on under my name? I know that sounds weird but I ask because I've been harassed online for the last year and a half., and it's very likely the people harassing me are aware of this forum.

are you logging out of your computer/ phone after your visits?

did you compromise your password?

No I haven't logged off when using my phone...for some reason I can't get it the log off to work on my phone, it only works with my computer.

Also, there is a possibility that they could figure out my password. I will have to change it.

In the past they had my user name blocked on another site ( I was able to easily change to a new user name), so I suppose there is a possibility someone is doing this just to harass/annoy me.

Or maybe it's just some weird computer glitch.

I think I fixed the log off problem. I had somehow switched the setting.
