If you forget to check to not receive updates, when you do get an email for updates on that feed, just delete the email. As long as you don't click through on the link in the email, you won't get any other email notifications for that.
I hope that helps!

Could not agree more, Default to not checked let me decide to check if I want to follow the feed. It is annoying and if you forget and just blast through than you have all the updates to delete later.... I like the feature but I do not like the default...

I agree. I love being able to see more of my friend feed - that is awesome. But I do wish that the check box for subscribing to comments on someone's feed would default to unchecked, then check if you want it instead of the other way around.
While I really and truly love the "next" so I can go through all the updates since my last posting - it has become annoying to have to remember to untick the box that automatically subscribes me - what I don't need is more emails when I am already checking all the updates daily.
One of my friends had in her status today, "doesn't like the SP change that automatically subscribes her to status comments unless she unchecks the box. It should be the other way around," and I must agree.
