  2. When I originally left a comment I seem to
    have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are
    added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is
    added I recieve 4 emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a way you are able to remove me from
    that service? Many thanks!
