Hi there
I've been away for quite a while and I just came back to this forum. So the site says I have 2 new messages. When I check my messages, it shows none. Am I doing something wrong?

What you have there is the porn incident - last fall we had a major spam attack here, wherein all users got two explicit gay porn private messages. Clinton removed them centrally by manipulating the database, which messed up the database logic a bit - the part of the system that tracks your new PMs still thinks that you have two unread private messages, but because Clinton removed them, you can't see them.

So it doesn't affect anything, and you don't have to do anything about it.
