 * status:  new => closed
 * resolution:   => fixed


 I've done some work on this recently, including:

  * Notifications: Add an unsubscription and notification management link
 to the footer of matcher notification emails.
  * Notifications: Add a enable/disable functionality, to allow temporarily
 disabling notifications without deleting them.
  * Notifications: Record a lifetime hitcounter for matchers in the DB
  * Notifications: Include a more specific reason why they're getting the
 email in the notification emails.

 > For example, there's a user with a matcher for 'WordPress', and two for
 other common terms such as 'Help', 'Login', 'Music', 'Google', '404', etc.

 There was also a matcher for 'the' which was being triggered thousands of
 times a day :) That has since been disabled.

 After disabling the worst notification offenders, the number of matchers
 triggers are significantly reduced. But there are still some that are
 getting hit ~25 times a day.

 I'm marking this as fixed for now.
