"Following" a post activated without my involvement.

I created an account some time ago, and posted a single question.

Lately I've been getting notifications on other peoples posts.  If I access the post it indicates that I am "Following" it, which is why I received the notification.  I can then un-follow it and the notifications stop.

The issue is I NEVER CHOSE TO FOLLOW IT IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!

This is really annoying as it is happen a few times in the last couple of weeks, and I am tired of getting my inbox spammed with content I am not interested in.

Example (see below)...I did not chose to follow this post.

Hi Dan,

This is very odd! I've notified OS of your post, I hope they can check what's going on.

Happened again today.  Why would I get this?  I did not choose to follow this?

Hello Dan.

They are all related to a component: OutSystems UI.

Check here if you aren't following the component.

@Nuno.  I think you are onto something.  It did indeed indicate that I was "Following" OutSystems UI, however I didn't ever select to following.  Interesting, it won't let me "Unfollow" it.  When I select "Unfollow" it presents me with an error.

While the UI changed to "Follow" which would give you the impression it's state had changed, after I refresh it changes back to "Following".

We are close, just need to figure out why it won't let me unfollow the OutSystem UI component.
