I have officially been introduced to Github spam.

I received an email notification from Github letting me know I was mentioned in an comment on a random issue in a random repo.

The comment started with "Hey My super private photo and video" along with link and a pile of mentions to about 50 different Github accounts, including mine.

The comment is now gone (was posted yesterday).

Good grief. I didn't know this was a thing. I would like to go back to that please.

@rachelcherry Man, I was just looking at an issue I got mentioned into, wondering how the heck that happened. Thanks for telling me it's not just me

@rachelcherry that sounds ridiculous. Sometimes it amazes me the places people will post spam
