Hello to moderators n technical ppl here.
It's something confusing and , yes, dissapointing happen to me when messaging here in TP.
Couple of days ago I received a private message from other user, replied my answer, received reply from him, etc. few times.

Last time, when I wrote email (re-ply, one again) and pressed "send" - it dissapeared fast and instead of "your message was sent" a new empty "reply" form appeared. I checked in "sent", but it wasnt appear in the list, also letter that i answered was not marked as answered. I decided that it was not send - bcause of connection or what ever prob. Pity, but not a drama. "Later", I thought.
At the next day I received a letter from unknown person - which is not a crime, BUT I seen in subject my own "reply text", same one that was (or wasn't ?) sent to another person a day ago.

Even it was nothing sensative in this messaging, it left unpleasant feeling of unsafe system of TP.
Just wanted to let you know.
If you need any additional info for taking care abt this issue - pls contact me.

That's bizarre.
I think one of the admins would need to take a look in the database to really figure out what happened, but the only thing which comes to my mind right now - which would be good to rule out: Was the username of the person who replied to you in any way similar to the person you originally wanted to reply to? That is, could you accidentally have edited the "To" field and inadvertently addressed the reply to this other person because of it? (So was for example the username of the one person "Sander" while the other person was called "ande"?)

yep, sounds bizarre,
no, name of one who responded was not similar,
he said his name and I took a look - it's a new member with no photo or what ever history in TP, looks like time of creation of his profile is same that message that was sent (to me).
Message itself was not anything special, kind of "let's get friends", but the fact that "stolen" subject was inside made me mad.
I would like to hope that it's a lil bug in the system and not whole sys is cracked by hackers, which is possible - for any business reason or just "for sport". It's really better to check it up (by admin) - if it's possible, because TP is also dealing with accomodation and other money-related issues, I guess.

Hi Vanessa,

I've had a look and don't see anything particularly strange going on with your messages. I'll continue this conversation over private message, because I need some details about what the subject was, etc.

Cheers, Peter
