Even though I currently don't have any "tracked discussions", I received an email indicating activity on a discussion. No big deal. Just info only.

After posting this, I received not one but two emails showing my post. Maybe there is a problem.

I had the exact same thing happen to me last week. A email came in (in duplicate) indicating I had a "tracked discussion" and giving me instructions on how to eliminate. I have never used the "tracked discussion" feature, and this one was easily deleted. It was the only time and has not repeated. Probably just a mystery fluke that sometimes happens without knowing the cause. My PC is free of spyware and viruses.

For several years I have thought that computers can develope a personality from constant usage by a single person, and be able to read their masters mind or intensions in some instances.
