Is there a way (at the Facebook end, not via filtering my end) to opt-out of receiving notifications every time someone else adds a comment to a thread I am involved in?

Good question. +1. I'm looking forward to getting a solution for that. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Aug 10 '10 at 11:09

Click on the "Account" drop down menu (upper right hand corner of the page) then click "Account Settings" and go to the "Notifications" tab. Go through the list of notifications and deselect any notification you don't want. Fifteen out of the sixty-six notifications represented on this page are triggered by comments.

To opt-out of notifications for treads you're involved in, deselect the six notifications that start with: "Comments after me..."
