When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!

I drop a comment each time I like a post on a site or I have something to add to the conversation. It is caused by the fire communicated in the article I browsed. And after this article 2016 Competition Winners | SPCO Youth Chamber Music Competition. I was actually moved enough to post a thought :) I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or do a few of the responses come across like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list the complete urls of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
