Moderator messages - a bug?

Discovered by accident when replying to a post elsewhere. Anyone can post them, it would seem.

Moderator Message:
Is this a bug? If it is, there is all sorts of fun that can be had with it here... :twisted: :twisted:

It's been known about for as long as the mod-boxes have been used, and as such, is explicitly covered in the current site rules -

  • Users are prohibited from impersonating a Board Moderator or Admin, and prohibited from using any Moderator-related board functions

Site rules - https://www.lemonfool.co.uk/app.php/rules

I very strongly suspect that any potential misuse by non-mod posters would gain a rapid and rather sharp response...

Cheers,

Been there. As many of you are aware my sense of humour can sometimes drift off course. Yes IAAG I do have a sense of humour - it's not in good shape though :lol:

Not long after I started posting I left a joke on Laughing Lemons. Later in the thread in response to a post and quite innocently I typed in

.................................................................................................................................. "This Thread is Locked"

It was in context with the way the thread was going and it was innocent but a moderator did follow up my post with "no it's not" :lol:

Since moderator messages may occur in quotations, it might be difficult to disable this "bug", e.g.,

Unless you have moderator privelages, you can only insert a mod box in your own message and, as has already been stated, any such "fun" is likely to be very short-lived.

Your membership of TLF might suffer a similar fate if you were to misuse quotation boxes,
