  1. When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on
    each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
    There has to be a means you are able to remove me from that service?

    Thanks a lot!

    • I’m sorry – that’s not something that I can do. It is WordPress that sends you the e-mails, not me. You need to sign into WordPress, go to your subscriptions, and un-select comments from this blog. There may also be an ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of the e-mails from WordPress, which you can click. Otherwise you will need to contact WordPress.
