The Account Settings / Feeds have been reworked a bit to make the sliders more intuitive. You should be getting many less notifications for the feeds that you've dialed down.
Before: all sliders were added together, and the difference between 100 and the highest percentage of slider / total weight was used as an inherent bias to each slider percentage, and then I think there were some references to phase of the moon and gender and the stock market and whatnot; the code got a little turgid at that point and some of the hieroglyphics were smeared.
After: There are seven notches in the account settings, and they give you the following chance that you'll see a message from that feed:
Slider is 1: 5% chance
Slider is 2: 25%
Slider is 3: 50%
Slider is 4: (default): 75%
Slider is 5: 82%
Slider is 6: 90%
Slider is 7: 100%
If you haven't changed your settings at all then everything is at 100%.
