If it was from Flippy, he's already been nuked. When spammers are removed from the back office all of their pending PMs are removed automatically.

Our backroom boys are working on a fix to clear the PM alert boxes this leaves.

Apologies for the delay in removing the links -- we have so much other crucial work on our plate and deadlines to hit, so it is priority after they have been completed.

So that's why I've had that phantom message for over a year! Well, now it has lots of company :bouncy:

I have 3 new messages, but there's nothing there. I suppose it was spam from banned users.

Yes, that is the symptom of the issue I'm afraid. You got three spams, they were deleted before you read them but the notification remains until such time as the chaps in the engine room clear that status.

In the meantime there have understandably been a number of threads associated with this issue so we're trying to coalesce these into a single master thread to avoid duplication. As such I'll lock this one, and refer all readers to the main thread which can be found here:
