I got an email alert today about a new reply being made to a TerraClips thread (the one about Sewers Photos). When I followed the link, I found that the last post was made back on 6/12. Is this a bug of some sort or did someone post SPAM and it got deleted by a mod before I followed the link?

I didn't see any support sort of forum on here to post this in (at least, none that isn't locked), so I apologize for posting this in the news area.

Fairly certain that someone posted and the post was deleted for one reason or another. But do let us know if it happens again.

Yeah, that'll happen sometimes. From time to time, spammers will post in a thread and a mod will nuke it, or a mod might be cleaning house, and so forth. I know I've deleted quite a few spam posts over the past couple of days. Because the email get sent out before the post is deleted, there's no take-backsies after it's winging its way to your inbox, and you'll end up visiting a thread and feeling vaguely like somebody rang your doorbell and ran off. :)

Well, at least you didn't leave a burning sack of dog poop on my front step before running off... :-)

You're very welcome. It's the quality and good nature of the posters here (like yourself) that makes moderating this forum such a pleasure.

Quoted for truth.
