    Okay, sorry if this is blindingly obvious, but I keep getting emails for all of my threads I've commented on or watched.

    I've checked here:
    Automatically watch threads that you create or when you reply...
    And unchecked this:
    and receive email notifications of replies

    And yet I still keep getting emails?

    you might need to turn off the notifications for the threads you're already watching that have the email notification on.

    go to your watched threads tab
    click "show all watched threads"
    select all the threads (there doesn't appear to be a select all so you'll just have to do it manually)
    and then at the bottom, there's a dropdown menu that says "with selected"
    choose "disable email notification"
    hit go

    that should work but please follow up here if it doesn't

    Trying manually unwatching all the threads you currently watch, and I think it should work.
    At least, that's how I think I did it.
    From there I can watch threads again, but I don't get emails. But I still get emails for those from before I changed my settings.

    Ah, Eluial Sedai beat me to it.

    Thank you, I got it! I clicked "manage watched threads" and there was an option to disable all email notifications.
