You can't shut off subscribtions, you can only subscribe and unsubscribe. By replying to a post you are automatically subscribed to that thread and the default setting in your user control panel (edit options section) will apply. i.e. if your default is instant email notification than you would get emails notifying you that the threads have replys to them.
So if you don't want emails simply do as Dean stated and shut it off. It's User Control Panel/Edit Options/Messaging and Notification/Default Thread Subscription Mode - "your setting"
Now, lets say you already have 20 threads you are subsribed to and it's set to email all them because that was your old default...what you need to do is go back to User CP and you will see all new threads subscribed to in the main body...
1) Click View all Subscribed Threads near the bottom right of the body.
2) Under the Notification Tab if it states None then your good otherwise select the threads you need to change, to select all use the check box all the way at the top and it will do all at the same time.
3) Now scroll to the bottom of the page to "Selected Threads" hit the drop menu and set it to No Email Notifications and hit GO!
Your done, so for now on you will not be notified. However lets say a thread is very important to you and it's urgent for you to get answers to your posts...You check your email more frequent or can't get on the board but got email...During one of your replys you can set the notification just for this one thread to sent emails if you would like...This does not work with quick reply just regular. If you forget to do it just go into User CP again and follow the above instructions to find it then just set it to send email instead of your default of No emails.
Hope this makes more sense.
