I've just received an alert for a thread being started in a forum I'm not watching:

and this is the forum showing the thread (and that it's not being watched).

You don't really - it's just somewhat context sensitive. You got the alert when it was posted. The text changed after it was split. The same thing would've happened in 1.1, it just would have said it was a reply (even though it was the first post in the thread).

You got the alert from being subscribed to the thread.
But I don't even know what that thread was, it's very confusing. Plus I want to be notified only by the posts in the thread, not the new threads that separated from the original discussion.
