Alert Bug Involving Quoted Post

    I have an alert telling me that DiracPool quoted me in his post here: https://www.physicsforums.com/threa...rds-rather-than-reptiles.832153/#post-5226201

    But I haven't even posted in that thread. The quoted post is actually SteamKing's, post #3 in the thread.

    I blame either @phinds, @OmCheeto, or @Evo and think they should be interrogated immediately. Careful, Phinds bites, OmCheeto's craftier than a fox with a full set of power tools, and Evo's got a banhammer even Greg fears.

    Kvetch, kvetch, kvetch. Always getting into one kind of trouble or another and now you're trying to blame it on others. You sound like a politician :smile:

    I would have described OmCheeto as "wiser than a snake" but "innocent as a pigent" (a kind of bird).

    Yes, I know how to spell "pigeon" but not all of our members do.

    Check the posting history. The original post included a quote from a different thread:

    Ah okay. So if you quote someone, post, and then edit out the quote, the person still receives an alert. Thanks MFB.
