I got 5 of these yesterday each 1 minute apart:

Dear ZenTrainer,

Daily Kos

I checked my last 10 diaries, the one's I've written in March and there is no problem with any of them. Were these emails a glitch? If they are real perhaps they could be made more specific? I've written a lot of diaries here. ;-)

    Thanks for asking. We've heard about these mysterious messages before, but since they are supposed to include a title they are maddeningly difficult to track down. We'll see if we can replicate the problem and then see if that leads us to a solution.

    I'll leave this open for a while in hopes that someone might supply an example of another one of these messages that they were able to track to a specific post/deleted image.

    All right, I think I may have a solution for you.

    Have you checked your drafts or any unpublished stories? They won't have headlines (any more), hence the empty field between the " ". That's the working hypothesis we have so far, which does check out from the experimenting I've done as well.
