    I am drawing a complete blank, here.

    I want to unsubscribe to a thread. In the past, I know I can do that from going to my User CP and checking a box next to my subscribed threads.

    But, I don't see any of those boxes next to my subscribed threads when I go to User CP.

    I know I've been able to unsubscribe in the past, but I must be missing a step.

    Can someone help me on that, please? I want to unsubscribe from the Dearborn Muslims stoning thread. It was retarded to start and it's gotten even moreso, surprisingly.

    You can go to the thread and find the "Thread Tools" menu near the top.

    There should be an unsubscribe option there.

    In User CP, there's a link under the thread title for each subscribed thread that says "Unsubscribe"

    Or at least there should be.

    Great! I didn't know about the thread tools. I used to do it from user CP. Thanks for all that.

    And, I finally realized why I couldn't see those check boxes on my list of subscribed threads on my user cp. I had to click on see all subscribed threads, then I had the option to unsubscribe.

    But, now I'm going to use the thread tools...much easier.

    Thank you everyone!

    This is a serious question, why unsubscribe from a thread?

    I do it frequently - when the conversation has gone on another 400 posts since I last posted in it, or the topic has veered into complete nonsense.

    Or simply if I stop being interested in a conversation.

    I unsubscribe when the last five or six pages have been nothing but name calling and it doesn't look like there is any hope of reviving the thread.
