I will tell you what happened.
I'm tracking this discussion as well and I received an email when you posted your "about:config" post.
My email showed the subject title as a link, not to your post but like this, about:config .
Clicking it did nothing fortunately, (at least in my Thunderbird email software and Firefox browser which is my default browser), and in any case didn't take me to your post, but I knew where the discussion was. I alerted your post, not as offensive, but as an 'interesting' effect for the engineers to look at.
The forum filters filter out URL links in the subject title as a method of combating spam but this seems a likely loop hole.
As soon as Bob saw my alert, (all Mods get the alerts), he tested it. It is a loop hole of sorts as the email you and I both got confirmed, because clicking that takes us both to the Twitter sign on page.
There's potential here for malicious mischief and so the engineers and Forum Admin may want to look further into this.
So, you're being used as a guinea pig,
