Am I the only one who is noticing this? (10 posts)

    This has nothing to do with WordPress (well, not the self-hosted or .com versions anyway.) Am I the only one who is noticing the following text in some of the forum posts:

    "Started 1 week ago by coach bags for sale"

    (Note the "coach bags for sale"). What gives?

    Example 1
    Example 2
    Example 3

    (Edited with a few example links.)

    On which page are you actually seeing this?

    the posts in question are deleted spam posts.

    "Deleted spam posts" means not deleted, viewable, and able to accept replies?

    If you are actually still seeing the spam posts then one of 2 things is happening

    1. Your broswer has the spam cached or
    2. Something is quite wrong with the forums.

    Please check with another browser.

    Checked it from my laptop with a clean cache (haven't even visited the WordPress support forums on the laptop) and I'm seeing the same thing.

    Just checked in another browser and I can't see them without mod access.

  7. Can you share a screen shot?

    Screenshot (ss of example link 1)
    Screenshot (ss of example link 2, topic started by me)

  9. OOOH! You mean on the sidebar! Not that the spam posts are showing!

    See I knew I was missing something :D

    Okay, yeah, that's a weird bug.

    Just to let you know this bug is being investigated now by the server people. Thanks for reporting!
