Why did the alert format change from good to useless?

Ever since the forum changed engines many months ago from an email that displayed the contents of the post to and email that provides a link to the post I have not followed or participated in this forum.

I have revisited the website many times to try to figure out how to change the format back to the old way, to no avail.

Today I on get the repetitive "Hello Ken Allen, You are currently subscribed to the forum Business, and a new thread has just been posted."
How useless and a waste of space is that?

Can anyone tell me how to get emails that actually show the content of the posts?
