Prerefences: ghost settings / async artifacts?

I am getting totally fed up with Discourse.

Yesterday, as I started getting the “100 emails a day” warning, I disabled Mailing list mode in Preferences. It seemed to work.

Right now, I got another email. I logged in, went to Preferences – and sure enough, Mailing list mode was back on.

This feels very similar to some behavior by Gmail for example. Multiple load balancing servers not getting synced correctly or not at all.

Can I have the old deterministic internet back, please? :cry:
