Hi all
My recent thread about grey water ran it's course a couple of weeks ago. Late last night I looked on my phone and noticed one of the automatically generated emails that gets sent when someone posts a replay or follow-up. The short message was in very broken English. It seemed a bit funny so I deleted the email (not just in the bin but deleted) and went to have a look at the thread - there is nothing new there that I can see.
Was I dreaming or was something odd happening there? Has anyone had this sort of thing happen?
cheers

There was a bunch of spam replies added to posts yesterday. It might be something to do with that.

I noticed the same thing and presumed that either the OP or EO had deleted the post.
From the text it seems they perhaps accidentally posted to the wrong Thread.

Other forums have had the same problem. One had new members putting the spam through the private messaging system.
