It seems kind of silly to NOT be subscribed to a new message area thread if you originate it.

Of course, you could unsubscribe afterwards.

I'd rather not have that any thread I make I get subscribed to automatically, so in this sense you can as well subscribe after making the thread.

According to Giorgo of the Ancient Astronaut Theorists I do not help with tech questions via private message. He's right: please use the forums for that.

Don't think I have ever subscribed to a thread I started,

Certainly wouldn't want loads more emails than I already get if I had to remember to unsubscribe every time!!

I'm on a couple of other boards which have auto-subscribe, and it really score "Grade One Plus" in the PIA for number of emails. arriving. The wort by fas is one that posts every time someone LOOKS at a thread :-(
