Re: Private Messages
Could be one of two things.
#1. The server the board is hosted on had some mail problems. They kicked the server, it screamed, and finally sent out a backlog of messages. I think this is what happened, as I just received some email notifications indicating there was a new reply to one of my threads; the replies were not recent.
#2. Someone spammed a bunch of members here via PM (it happens a lot, had it happen on my board multiple times). An admin found the problem, stopped the spam, and deleted all the spam PMs. They can't go back in time and stop the email alert from going out though.
