Whenever I reply to a comment on YouTube, I am automatically subscribed to all replies to that same comment. Usually this is what I want, as the comments emailed to me are usually replies to what I said or at least relevant.
However, other times it gets quite spammy and I stop wanting to receive messages about that thread. At the bottom of all of these emails is "Mute email updates to this post" with "Mute" linked. Clicking this mute button brings me to a Google+ page which has the thread and "Muted" in red. This is all lies, as I continue to receive updates on the comments.
The only way I have found to do this so far is to mark the thread as spam, but then other messages from YouTube that I do want also get marked as spam. Also, not all email clients support this.
How do I stop receiving email notifications for specific comment threads?
