This is a great example where I find that Discourse’s UI/UX tries to be too smart and ends up being confusing, to say the least:
I’m owner & admin of the forum, and occasionally I receive such messages. It’s clear that Discourse decided that a user account should be put on hold to prevent spam, which is perfectly fine.
What I really don’t understand is the UI:
- Why does the “Account temporary on hold” message appears first, i.e. preceds (in time) the user’s message?
- Why is the “Account temporary on hold” message attributed to myself (Franz)?
- Why can I edit it? Reply to it?
- Did the user receive it too?
- What happens if I reply? Does the user get my reply?
