hmm.. I have noticed that you can only unsubscribe from a thread via the control panel. If you click "Thread Tools" in an already subscribed thread, it still gives you the option "Subscribe to this thread".:?:

I don't do any e-mail alerts. I can easily unsubscribe via the control panel, but I was just informing the admins with a problem w/ the website features.

It's not just you, Josh. The same problem exists here, and I suspect it's identical for everyone else as well.

The ability to unsubscribe from within the thread page was removed because it requires a large table scan on each thread load to check whether you are subscribed to the thread or not ... and the percentage of users actually unsubscribing via thread pages is minimal compared to the overhead of checking on every single page load.

Good move to help speed things up! :) I was wondering the same thing and now know the reason why.
