Unless, of course, it is your own thread - then you can only stop notifs once you have closed the question.

It's quite simple - when you post a reply the page will reload - when it does just click on the stop monitoring icon - done.

Do agree in part, in that on some questions I would like to be able to cancel notification of other than original Author comment. Particularly where I have asked for some additional information, or clarification.

Normally I would just delete e-mails from a question I was no longer interested in, but it is surprising what you can pickup from other users comments, if you take the time to read them.

"...it is surprising what you can pickup from other users comments, if you take the time to read them."

Exactly. Most experts fully participate in a thread and without reading the flow of comments you can't really be certain of what has transpired.
 A lot of times the asker needs to provide more information or just clarify the issue.
A single comment is not usually all that helpful helpful as you no doubt have  noticed.

It doesn't seem likely that EE is going to redesign the notif system at this point.
It's only a single click to unsubscribe from someone else's thread anyway.
