I've tried the new subscription feature on Java tag, but then decided I did not want to get another daily e-mail after all.

After I've hit unsubscribe the tag was also removed from my Interesting Tags.

Given that subscribing adds a tag to your interesting tags, this might be [status-bydesign] (though even if it is, it's likely not the desirable behaviour). – Tim Stone Jan 10 '11 at 19:27
@Tim: Surely since adding a tag to your interesting tags doesn't automatically subscribe you, this isn't by design. – Jefromi Jan 10 '11 at 23:27
@Jefromi That's true, but in this case the unsubscribe link was undoing all of the things that the subscribe link did (email + interesting tag), which may be expected. Based on Geoff's answer, it looks like they'll be separating the actions a bit, which makes more sense anyway. – Tim Stone Jan 10 '11 at 23:41

We are adding a * next to the subscribers count which will allow you to favorite a tag - this will be disconnected from the current "subscribe" link which will opt you in for daily emails. Expect this in the next build.
