Strange message about comments

  1. Apparently the entire WP team is out until the 15th, so hopefully someone knows the answer to this!

    I keep getting this strange message on the dashboard:
    http://membracid.files.wordpress.com/2011/08/whatthe.png (screen shot)

    I don't have any unnapproved comments, and when I click that link, it sends me to an en.blog.wordpress.com address which does not have a valid security certificate. (so I haven't opened it)

    Anyone know what the heck this is?

    The blog I need help with is membracid.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi. Please try clearing your browser's cache and cookies:

  3. It actually disappeared before I had a chance to do that. In fact, it went away about 10 minutes after I posted this!

    What I really want to know is WHY wordpress was telling me I had 48 messages on this en.blog site.
    What the heck is going on? Has anyone else seen this?

    I can't imagine a situation in which a cookie/cache would create that message on the WP dashboard, with that link. (and my browser clears the cache and cookies automatically on close, BTW.)

  4. There was some bug that made people contributors to other people's blogs for awhile there. It was odd, but seems to have been fixed. There are multiple threads on Page 2 of the forum about it.

  5. YIKES. Did not connect those two dots.
