  • Hello, everyone. I would like to report a worrying discovery. I just discovered this discussion, and saw, to my amazement, that D. M. Costa and Libby have posted replies to posts from a "Paul-Dominique," notably on 27June. Can there possibly be two Paul-Dominiques at the Townhouse? Or perhaps there's a bug somewhere?

    Just want to make it clear that THIS Paul-Dominique has never made a post to this discussion.

    • Paul-Dominique... what you're seeing, I think, is a bug that occurs when a user deletes their account.

      For some reason, existing posts from that account appear as posted by 'unknown'. More confusingly, replies to those posts appear to be posted as replies to the account of the person that's reading them! So I'm seeing those very same replies to the posts you mention as replies to 'my' posts. And, I assume everyone else is seeing them as replies to 'theirs'.

      So no need to worry. You neither have a doppelganger, nor is anyone else seeing replies to posts from you that you didn't make!

      • As bugs go, that's pretty damed neat. (Thank **** Townhouse is due to migrate off this unfit-for-purpose platform.)

        • Jon, thank you for solving that mystery! It's a huge relief to know it's only a bug.
