I've created a form. Originally I had it emailing a specific user (me) under the form's Submission options. I've since removed that and republished the form, but it won't "stick." Every time a user submits a new form, it emails me. And when I go back to the submission options under Email responses, I've been added back.

No matter how many times I remove myself from receiving responses, I still get them. I’m doing this under Interfaces/Forms view where I create and edit forms. The selection is in the right sidebar.

I will uncheck my name — I’ve even tried Clear all, even though I’m the only one selected. Then I republish the form. It will show that I’m no longer receiving email responses. I can leave and go back, and it still shows correctly. But once someone sends a form, I get the response anyway. When I go back to the forms interface, it shows me as receiving responses.

In short: When I disable my receiving responses in the interface view, it won’t stick. I still receive them.

Here is a screenshot of the menu I'm using to toggle responses on/off in the interfaces/forms page.
