    anyone else get this?

    i didnt get a screencap but after posting a message on the neobards someone sent me a neomail saying "call my phone number " and then they typed out a random number. obv i didn't call n i didn't even click on their page.. but like two minutes after i navigated away from the neomail.. i can't even FIND it anymore in my inbox and there's like no evidence i ever had a mail like that in the first place. its been a long hiatus since i last played or interacted with the community so.. what gives? i kinda just assumed cookie grabber or something that got frozen but do neomails disappear when the user gets frozen? kinda weirded out rn lol

    Could have been auto-moderated, or someone else reported the user and tehy got frozen. Mods went in and reversed their neomails.

    Would be my guess. I don't think it was a cookie-grabber but more so just spam

    Person was probably spamming that neomail and since it had a phone number (even if it's fake) TNT did something. I know your replies on topics get deleted when you get warned/silenced but I'm not sure about neomails.

    okay, that makes sense. are cookie grabbers even still a thing on neo? i left when they were still being used really regularly, so he gave me a little spook there

    Haven't seen those in a while but it's always good to exercise caution (Block 3rd party stuff, NoScript and all that).

    I've had this happen to me (something similar anyway) it makes sense the message gets deleted because if it does lead to something suspicious simply freezing the account and not removing the message won't solve the problem. Like someone else said they probably spammed that message and got lots of reports.
