LOL! I discovered that by accident, too. I was on a thread and had a boat load of tabs open and my old, snail-speed computer had gotten to the point
of needing to be rebooted - all lagging and hanging because I had so much going on. I was being impatient waiting for the thread to go to the next
page and clicking my mouse at the bottom of the page (not because it actually would make it switch faster, but it felt
like I was doing
something to hurry it up) and the browser did one of those little hangs and I accidentally ended up clicking on the subscribe button. I didn't
particularly want to be subscribed to that thread, so I scrolled back to the bottom of the thread and clicked on the un-favorite button (because I had
forgotten how to unsub from threads) and then went to my myats page and panicked when I saw that one of my favorite forums was missing from the
I spent a bit trying to figure out what I had done and finally, on a whim, tried the button that was in place of the un-favorite button. It worked
and everything was back on my myats page again. In a different order, but back.
It was really confusing. I hadn't used the un-favorite button ever before that, so I didn't realize that I wasn't just un-favoriting the
individual thread, but the whole forum on my myats page. Now I just try to avoid buttons in general, because my luck is such that I'd be the one
person who could crash the entire internet just by hitting the escape key or something!
