If you go to that post, you should be able to click an "unfollow this topic" option on the right hand side near the top of the page.

Ok, click on your names at the top right hand corner and then click on 'My Settings'.

Then on the left hand side, theres a list of options, click on Notification Options.

One of the first options is 'Topics & Posts'

and then underneath it says ' Auto follow topics I reply to. Notification frequency'

is the drop down box on 'None' ?

 

If not, click on 'None'

and then 'save changes' at the bottom of that page.

 

see if that works...

it should just stop you getting emails for everytime someone likes or answer one of your posts.
