So I just quoted a post containing my mention, and got an email saying I'd mentioned me.

I thought mentions weren't supposed to work in quotes.

@AndrewNZ, sorry didn't get any extra notifications, only the ones I expected. Could possibly have been a glitch in the matrix - I've checked the code and it's pretty straightfoward...

What about I called @PeterReader.

Then @freitasm quotes this post?

And I got an email.

It must be because @freitasm hates me... ;-)

Indeed, as neither myselff or PeterReader (I've just looked at his logs, poor robot) are not receiving any self-inflicted notification.

 

Tried logout and login again?

I had the same issue once. I think it might be related to when a 3rd party quotes replies.

Did the BDFL get a notification from this?
