For the past day I've been getting email notifications for comments people left on my entries/comments WEEKS ago - but not the ones they've left in the past day.

I've gotten a couple of those myself. Apparently they got stuck inside some mail server somewhere.

I remember one time back in the old days when a draft of one of my Undocumented Features stories was stuck in some mail server for about nine months. I only found out 'cuz I got a bounce 'cuz one of the recipients' addresses had changed in the meanwhile.

You're not the only one, I just got a notification of a reply to a post that was made on 7/5

Likewise. Thus far, there's been a correspondence between (source of old comment) and (source of new comment), but I have very limited data points.

I got an expiration notice for my extra userpics...

...from June 9th.

That didn't help, because my userpics expired the 12th of June and caught me off-guard. ;)

Past information on this issue; current information on it.

Basically, sometime in the past their servers started directing some emails to the wrong place in their network, where they kinda got stuck. They discovered the erroneous destination and have recently started cleaning it out (by sending the emails where they were supposed to go).

Apparently these emails have also been given priority over newer emails. Go figure.

I got one as well, a reply you'd done to one of my comments quite some time ago.
