Why some email messages need context

At about 11:00 p.m. last night, I posted my latest musing in the nibbled to death by ducks series. At about 12:30 a.m., I received a message from Facebook with the title [Bulk Mail] Reader Name commented on the link you shared. What was the comment?

Sounds wonderful.

My first reaction? You think my workload sounds wonderful? Really? And I thought I was snarky!

But it seemed unlikely that this reader would make such a snarky comment and so I clicked the Show on Facebook button. It turns out that they were behind in reading and were actually commenting on my code camp article.

I still like the original interpretation, though.
