    How can I disable these alerts?

    Each time somebody is starting a new thread I'm getting an alert.
    That hasn't happened before. How can I make that stop?

    Damn...this sucks. I don't want to get an alert every time a forum member posts a new thread.

    Go the Stern forum, click Watched Alerts and turn that off. You musta hit the button to watch and now it's alerting you every time someone makes a thread.

    I just noticed that there's a "watch forum" button on the main page. I must have accidentally clicked on that.
    My bad.
