What is going on with TFL?

All of a sudden I am getting multiple TFL emailings.  It started when there were 21 topics.  I got that, then got it again.  Next time there were 24 topics, the 21 i got earlier plus 3 new ones.   Got that one 3 times and then 27topics, the 24 earlier plus 3 new ones.  Next email was 30 tiopics, the 27 earlier plus 3 new ones.  I have gotten that 2 times now followed by a 31 topic and a 32 topic.  Still contains all the earlier ones plus a new one.   I am getting these about once every other hour now.   Very strange.   Never happened before yesterday late afternoon (I live in NYC).

Very disturbing.  Does TFL have a virus or is someone phishing the website?  I surely hope not because this is one of my definite go-to sites.

The problem is being worked on:

Sometimes it pays to scan the entire home page.

One email a day is all folks should receive under normal conditions.  Unfortunately there has been a bug preventing the mailing from completing so it keeps starting over from the same place. My apologies. 

I thought I had it fixed last night before I went to bed but I'm waking up to see I did not.  I just tried something else that I think has stopped them.  Again, my sincere apologies.

No big deal Floyd.  The site is so good and reliable, what's a bug or two ?  We're sure it will be fixed soon.  Thanks for all the hard work !!!

Floyd, these things happen so no apologies needed.  We know how hard you and Mrs. Floyd work to maintain the site and to keep things clean.  When I recieved multiple emails I just deleted the extras, not a big deal.  I rather getting multiple than no mails at all.  Keep up the good work.  We all appreciate what you do for us.

for working on the bug, but today I don't have a single email from the site, and since I have had at least one or two per day dealing with threads etc, and the fresh content email its rather odd.

Hope it hasn't stopped the emails period!
