Hi,

I suspect you have subscribed to a forum, and not any individual topics, please see the post at https://wordpress.org/support/topic/spam-from-wordpress-org-forum-subcription/page/3/#post-8403054 that covers this and how to properly unsubscribe.

@iwdesignandprint Somehow, you actually managed to subscribe to everything. Every single forum. Because of the forum subscriptions, you were getting every post made by everybody.

You were also subscribed to around 60+ individual topics, not just one.

I have manually unsubscribed you from everything. If I were you, I'd check and see if something is wrong with your browser. There's no sane reason for a person to subscribe to all the forums.

And for future reference, you can manage all your subscriptions right here:
