Is Wordpress Scaring Your Commenters Away?

About a week ago, Stumbling Gracefully texted me to ask if I was getting like, a LOT of emails from Wordpress. I checked my inbox, and sure enough I was. When I looked at the emails, I realized that I was seeing every single response to any Wordpress post I had commented on. Previously, I had to subscribe to a commenting thread to see any response made after mine.
