Then uncheck "automatically watch threads" under "options":

That will stop any automatic following of the posts. You notice that mine is unchecked- because I'm such a blabbermouth that I'd have sooooo many followings. If you want to ever follow, you can choose that or you can click "my content" to follow up any former posts as well.
I hope that helps!
