Weird deletion message?

On one of the threads I started, there has been a deletion. I am assuming the poster was a troll, because they have been deleted from other threads too.

Problem is, the deletion message I am seeing is, well, ODD.

I will post what I am seeing where this poster has been deleted :

Message deleted by Mumsnet for breaking our <atarget="_blank"href="/info/netiquette"rel="nofollow"> Talk Guidelines </a>. Replies may also be deleted.

I am on an iPhone 4, using iOS6, on the App, if that helps.

Wtf was it MEANT to say??!

I am curious now. Please sate my curiosity. grin

I've seen that message all over the boards. I just assumed it had gone a bit wrong grin

It should say

Message deleted by Mumsnet for breaking our Talk Guidelines. Replies may also be deleted.

The garbage in the middle should be telling the web browser to hyperlink to the talk guidelines but I suspect there is a typo in there preventing it doing so.

Someone broke MNHQ shock

Ah! I wondered if there was maybe a bit that said something like "OP is a bridge dweller" or something! grin

This happens when we mass delete postings by a particular talk name - it's a glitch that we're looking to fix soon!

Ah, ok, makes sense (kind of)

Ok, so the translation of "<atarget="_blank"href="/info/netiquette"rel="nofollow">" is "This poster is hairy-handed and all his/her posts have been deleted under our ..."
