will my manifold emails from @egyweva ever be "normal"?
closes Jun 1

so normally my notifications about a new market being created by someone i follow looks something like this:

however, for some reason, every single market created by @egyweva is backwards, like such:

if you're wondering, this reads "doubleluft, (who you're following, just created a new market, check it out!" you may notice that the text is completely backwards, and the formatting is strange too. additionally in the image, doubleluft is spelt backwards as well.

i have absolutely no clue why this is. i do notice that their username is "backwards", but i don't know why this would affect the emails i receive. (this has been the case for several months, so it's not april fools or anything, i think)

resolves YES if by close date my emails aren't backwards from doubleluft, and NO if they are still backwards. i must see conclusive evidence that they are fixed- just one outlier months before resolve date won't change anything.

I assume the username has a zero width character which reverses the text

@Conflux zero width characters can burn
