    You have to do 2 things:

    1. Hover the mouse over the drop down arrow next to your name. Then click on Prefrences. There you can uncheck the box next to "receive and email..."
    2. Hover the mouse over the drop down arrow next to your name. Then click on Alert Prefrences. Then you can choose what to get email about and so forth.

    Moving it to spam is not recommended. You have the option to opt out from email, each time you reply to thread it automatically subscribes you it, click the link "unwatch" so that you don't get email notifications for it. Moving the messages to spam is not a good thing for the site, as when you legitimately expect emails notifications they could be blocked from your email provider and it can give the site a bad rep with different email clients where users emails would be sent to the spam folder.

    You seriously don't need to block Pirates Forums from your E Mail. All you have to do is change the settings in your Preferences and Alert Preferences options.

    You may opt out of any and all emails from this site in your user control panel. Alert preferences are strictly for alerts and do not send emails. To opt out of thread emails, simply uncheck the box next to "and receive email notifications of replies" on https://piratesforums.co/account/preferences

    Please ignore the word 'that' in between 'post' and 'this' in my previous post.

    And you're welcome:D
