Notification on a dead topic. spam? Hack?

Post by kturock » Mon Jan 14, 2019 2:37 pm

I got an email notification and a notification here that a very old, dead topic got a new post.

Last post is 2013.

Nah. He deleted his post immediately after leaving it.

If no one has read a post/comment in a conversation thread, the user can sometimes delete it immediately after leaving it.

So it sent you an email, but when you checked, the comment was already gone.

Ok. I thought when he did that it would show either edited or deleted.

We see on our side when it is deleted, which is the only reason I know what happened.

But yeah, it's all good :)
