I'm having the same problem... I've been reminded repeatedly to respond to a message that I responded to the day it was received. When I log in, it says "Interested", not "Awaiting Response". – Adrian Jun 2 '11 at 21:44
Something went a bit wrong... apologies! We're working on it and have stopped the reminder emails in the meantime. – Korneel Bouman Jun 2 '11 at 21:56
I got one as well. – Won't Jun 3 '11 at 15:00

My apologies for the rash of erroneous emails many of you have received; the problem is now fixed.

As you may notice, we have updated the messaging system away from the one message, one response setup and now support messaging in a threaded manner. The other stuff (response controls, etc) remain essentially the same, only you can reply as many times as you need and you can even change your interest in a position after setting it initially, if you so choose.

I received, no exaggeration, twenty such emails today.

Apologies, sir. We will attempt not to useless-email-bomb you into oblivion in the future. – Jason Punyon Jun 3 '11 at 14:52
@Jason apology accepted. I'm not actually pissed about it since they all arrived at the same time. I know it was not remotely intentional, and I love the services you guys provide (duh). Also, you misspelled "your majesty." :) – Matt Ball Jun 3 '11 at 14:55
