    Sudden Barrage of "Updates" on the WordPress echo of this site

    In the last 24 hours I've received a couple dozen emails from WordPress informing me that I've been "mentioned in a status update":

    These things come from a WordPress clone or echo of this site, which vaguely rings a bell (in other words I think it exists authentically with Ross's permission or participation rather than it being some sleazy content-pirate stealing FileMaker Cafe content or something). Examples:

    http://fmt.network/fmtnet/forums/top...-field/page/2/

    http://fmt.network/fmtnet/forums/top...e/#post-120843

    ... as you can see from those two, the most recent active dates on those is anywhere from 2 to 6 years ago.

    Anyone else getting them and is there a reason that people are getting emails claiming that a "status update" has taken place?

    I was just getting ready to complain about the same thing, only far fewer as I've posted about 11,000 fewer times than you.
