I have sent a note to Support on this matter. This may not be a big issue for many but for the blog like mine, it does make a big difference. I usually have a need to update my old blog posts, I really do not wish to send notifications out with updates.
Along the same lines, I have another issue which I have asked them to clarify. Whenever someone likes a post, we get a notification email with the country location of the person who liked the post. First of all, there are no country stats available in the dashboard, so aside from getting an instant gratification, there does not appear to be an aggregate view via these emails. Second, it defeats the purpose of anonymous blogging. Not that I don't want people to like my blog posts, but I cannot do the same because it defeats my purpose. I understand that geolocations are translated via IP addresses, but why translate in the first place?
