Slashdot, User ID 1504491. In the messages box on the right side of the homepage, article pages (and several others) it shows "Comment Moderation [X]".

If I click to read the comment, I see the error "Message 26287315 not found"

If I click the [X] or Delete All, the notification appears to be removed from the box, however returns upon navigating to a new page. (It does not return by merely refreshing the page.)

The comment the moderation message was for was likely sid=1366699&cid=29402823 - the moderation (and subsequent message) occurred at a time I was not on Slashdot, and I did not return to Slashdot within the 15 days before the message would have expired, meaning it never had a chance to be read.

Comment Moderation is set to "Web" in Messages settings. Windows XP Pro x64, FireFox 3.5.3.

Expected behaviour is for the message to have been removed from this list upon expiring, or at least to be permanently removable via the [X] link.

    I have also been suffering this on slashdot.org - it is incredibly annoying. I get the message:

    Message 27171508 not found

    When I click on the comment. When I select delete or [x] the comment returns even if I refresh the page (force refresh of cache).

    I have also been having this problem for at least a week or to. I currently have "Achievement: Got a Score:5 Comment [X] " stuck In the message box. It links to http://slashdot.org/messages.pl?op=display&id=27833732 which displays the message "Message 27833732 not found."

    I don't know if this is related, but I also haven't gotten any mod points or meta-moderation invites in ages, even though I have positive Karma and visit fairly frequently.

    I am still having this problem and I am now pretty sure that something is keeping me from getting mod points, as I haven't gotten any since before I made my previous comment, despite reading relatively frequently and having positive karma. Is there anything I can do to fix this short of creating a new account?

    I have the same problem and it's been around for a year or so. 3 messages stuck in the sidebar: 2 replies and 1 comment moderation (the last received). Deleting them doesn't work and clicking on any of them results in a missing message.

    I'm also not getting moderation points since this problem started to manifest itself. As I said a year or so and I guess I should have received some them.

    FWIW these are the messages IDs: 24309369, 24318801 and 24305019.

    It's happening to me too. Really annoying.
