I’ve been using Discourse for a few years now and I love it, but I still don’t understand the email notification settings:

Some questions and constructive criticism:
- What’s the mailing list mode? One email for every new post? Maybe this needs a short explanation.
- Why is the setting “When I don’t visit here, send an email digest of what’s new” in two places?
- Isn’t there some overlap between “When I don’t visit here, send an email digest of what’s new” and “Send me email notifications even when I am active on the site”?
And my main gripe, which has already been discussed several times here but about which I’m not sure of the current status: Can I finally disable notifications for my own posts (topics and answers) while keeping notifications enabled for everything else?
