Notifications for unfollowed projects

Much to my surprise, I was receiving email notifications from a project that I wasn’t following. I believe at one point I had followed it, but in my settings I had unfollowed it.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Follow a project in CircleCI (if you have never followed it before, it will change the email notifications to Default)
  2. Unfollow that project
  3. You’ll receive emails from that project even though you unfollowed it.
  4. Navigate to Notifications in settings. You cannot change the notifications for a project you do not follow.

Fortunately, I still had access to that project, but I had to follow it, adjust email notifications, and unfollow again. If I did not have access, I think I would have been stuck and just deal with the incoming emails with no way to stop them.
