Referencing an earlier post (4 posts)

    I just posted an item that had a link in it to a previous item from a few days ago. I was surprised to get an email saying I had a comment on the prior item - from myself. Is this expected?

    Further when I went into Moderate Comments, I found the text of the so-called comment was actually every post title concatenated together between the new post and the referenced post.

    Any ideas anyone? Did I do something wrong? Bug?

    You pinged yourself. Some of the info in here might help:

    But the text of the comment sounds pretty weird...

    Maybe you put a link to that post on a page that lists post titles... like a TOC or "about" or on a sidebar or something? So it captured all those titles...?

    Understand the pinging myself bit and yes - I can change the href for that.
    @eveums - good idea but not the case. It was just a direct link to an earlier post - about four before.
    The content of the comment worried me - especially as I wanted to delete it. But I have done that with no ill effect.
    Looks like a bug to me probably if no one can explain it
