Same sort of thing as this other Bug Report I filed Bypass 'Please enter a valid message.' post restriction. You can trigger highlights with bogus empty messages, while in reality they contain an empty quote of the target.

See the below example (If you're a mod). Otherwise, quote the user and remove all of their text. They should receive an Alert.

Code:

I use it to my advantage ... it's like a Blind CC in email.
:)

When there are 12 people in a thread that are looking for something, I'll frequently collect them all (over over 10 pages) and then just paste a link (usually to a new thread) that shows that there request has been granted .... and will "blank quote" them to alert them.

As mentioned, this has been used intentionally by some people. It is a borderline bug, but I'm going to leave it for that usage right now, I think.
