Sometimes you lose interest in a particular discussion. Getting updates from that topic can be very annoying. As fortune would have it, it's easy to unfollow any discussion taking place on Geni. First, go to the Discussion page from the "Research" menu.
Now, make sure that you're viewing discussions that you're currently following. You can change that with the drop-down menu on the right.
Now go into the discussion you're no longer interested in and click the green "Unfollow" button.
From now on, you'll never have to see an update from this discussion again. If you change your mind later, you can go back and flip the green switch back to "Follow."
