Turn off auto watch and reminders when setting date due date on card

I use Trello for a personal Kanban board.   Just recently there is a new 'send reminder' option when setting a due date and you have to pick something.  I don't want reminders when I'm picking a due date is there a way to turn this off?   I seriously will likely stop using the product if this is a thing that can't be configured as I don't want excessive reminders about stuff.   I just want to see the date to remind myself and see it go red when something is late...that's it.    Also having the watch feature get turned on automatically when doing this is super's my board and only my board so I don't want to watch it and hate clicking that every time as well.  I'm going to be an ex customer soon if this doesn't change or can't be made configurable...not sure why this isn't an optional thing in the first place...forcing watching and reminders on people seems silly to me.

Update:  Looks like there is now an option to selection "None" for the reminder time which in turn doesn't set a watch.   So improvement at least.

Same. I'm glad I am not the only one with this concern! I use Trello to manage my next few days and getting the constant reminders is annoying since i'm looking at the board all day at work, but I need the dates to help me prioritize. I guess there might be a plug in that helps, but i'm using the ageing one.

I hope they tell us how to turn it off!

@Todd Galloway @Elizabeth Walker make sure you email and let them know you dislike that feature! It's something they're experimenting with so they need to know whether people like it or not.

Thank you for the suggestion @Iain Dooley - I have done as you suggested.

@Iain Dooley Is there a way to create a default setting of 'None' so you never receive reminders for all new cards unless you specific in each individual card? These constant reminders all day long for stuff due in 24 hrs is aggravating, but I don't want to have to select each individual card to turn them off. That's incredibly inefficient, the antithesis of what Trello is hoping to promote. Thanks.

@Zack_Arnold you should only have to choose that once, and then never again. I've noticed a bug in iOS that makes me choose not to ask again every time but the desktop and web apps honour that setting.
