Ideas->You Haven't Rated shows spam (8 posts)

    Sometimes (i.e. sporadically) the Ideas->You Haven't Rated shows spam on the summary page; clicking through to the idea shows the true idea. It seems that something somewhere has injected spam into the stream pulling the unrated ideas up.

    e.g. this idea, which appears to be a legitimate idea, displays as spam on the list view.

    I'm not seeing any spam atm.

    As I said, sporadic. I've had it several times lately, twice tonight.

    Could it possibly be browser related?

    Well, it's in the page source (i.e. it isn't injected via JavaScript, it came in the page payload). I'm using Chrome normally, but just tried with Firefox and after about a dozen or so page loads, I got a list of links to shoes and bridal stuff. I've also seen lists of links to handbag stuff.

    More on this: it's not just spam, it seems to be picking up comments from somewhere. It just threw up a comment from Chip Bennett about bookmarklets on an idea about bookmarklets, although that comment doesn't show on that idea:

  7. It shows spam when we haven't deleted it yet. I do delete them as soon as I spot 'em, btu ... well. Spam ;)

    ETA: That page shows some random posts you haven't rated, which is why sometimes you see spam and sometimes you don't.

    Yes but... deleted spam, and other messages. That page shows messages that are not the original idea message, and that don't appear on the idea. e.g. that message from Chip Bennett (see links above). Looks like a bug to me. A bug that sometimes shows deleted messages, and sometimes those messages are spam.
