    First hover over "Alerts" on the right side of the screen. When the drop down menu shows up, click on "Alert Preferences" at the bottom.

    This is useful for people that are familiar with forums and how they work. I would suggest that new people that don't really know how to navigate forums do not disable this feature until you become familiar with forum navigation. At first it is easier to get an email alert with a link to find replies to your questions. Once you get the hang of how forums work, you can disable it without worrying about missing replies.
