Don't add duplicate notifications if an unread notification for the same event type and parent post already exists
I was away from Codidact for a few hours and, coming back, saw that I had ⑨ unread notifications.
Practically as I was watching it, the number grew to ⑩.
This wouldn't be so bad, but it turned out that they really were for just three comment threads.
Getting one notification for each comment being added, before you have even had a chance to react to the notifications already in your notification inbox, can get rather overwhelming.
Hence, I propose that: if there is an existing unread notification, for the same type of event and relating to the same parent post (new answers to the same question, edits to the same post, comments within the same comment thread, new comment thread on the same post, etc.) then no further notification should be added to the inbox.
