For some reason that I cannot fathom the answer to, I keep getting what I call "ghost mails". I get notification emails, as if a topic I posted on has had a response, only to get a page saying "you are not authorized to view this page." and when I go manually look for the topic, it's there, but there hasn't been any responses in at least a good week or so, sometimes longer. This has happened at least 1x a week so far this last month+, and while it's not all that annoying, it is still a glitch that needs checked on. Thanks.

It actually isn't a glitch. What happens is a moderator or administrator moved the post to another location because it was a spam post.

The person could have deleted the post as well.

No, I can find the post, sometimes it's actually a thread of my own, and I know exactly where they are, same spot as before, no changes made to them, etc., so I say it's gotta be a glitch.

Can you provide an example of a thread this happened in? It may help in troubleshooting the problem.

Post the link that gives you the "you are not authorized to view this page."

If it is a spam post then I'll be able to see where it went.

Ok, when/if it happens again, I'll do that, cuz it doesn't work if I actually go TO the actual thread itself, like if I search for it manually, so Idk if that would work, but I'll do a screen shot too.
