    I noticed this morning that my profile pic was appearing next to hubber phdast7's comments on other people's hubs. At first I thought that it was a momentary glitch, so I refreshed, and it was still there. I clicked on the link to the comment, and my pic was still there.
    Here's a link to (one of) the comments in question: … t-10408213

    I thought, since this was happening in more than just one place, I'd check to see if phdast7 had taken my profile pic and used it as her own, and I would take it up with her directly. But her profile page has her own profile pic on it, (though my pic appears on the browser tab) so she's not doing it.

    But her hubs, for some reason, have my pic next to them. … ell-We-are … d-Colleges

    Is it possible that only I am seeing this bug? As far as I know, it's only phdast7's comments and hubs that incorrectly display my profile pic. I wonder if other hubbers have experienced this?

      I just looked and am not seeing the same thing that you are.  I see a completely different profile pic.  Maybe it is something with your computer?

        Anything's possible.

        I've also noticed a lot of "broken image" .jpgs where profile pics ought to be. Could they be connected?

          I'm not sure but it might be.  What browser are you using?  I've noticed that a lot of people have quite a bit of trouble with Internet Explorer on here.  I use Google Chrome and very rarely have any issues.

            I'm using Chrome Version 20.0.1132.47, on OSX v10.5.8

              Sorry, I'm at a loss then.  Hopefully someone who knows more about the innards of computers will be by to help soon!

      Jeff - I just responded to your email.   I am so sorry this is happening and I wish I knew how to fix it.   I went to all the links you posted above and to a lot of hubs that I have recently left comments on and and all of them had my profile pic and not yours.    I hope this is just a glitch and resolves itself quickly.

        No worries, I didn't think it was you, and after looking at your profile page I was sure it wasn't you.

        If it's only me that's seeing the wrong pic, it's no big deal.

        But if I'm getting a glitch, maybe others are getting the glitch, too.

      Sorry to hear about the problems you are experiencing.
      I don't see the image in comments to which you are referring.
      Have you cleared your cache and restarted your browser?

      I see 5 comments on … s-of-Words

      None of these comments seem to have your profile image. (

      The user comments I see are from the following 5 users and I have included URLs for each of the profile images displayed next to their comments.

    I have gone to these links, and I don't see that happening. I hope it works itself out soon.

    I don't see that you have commented on those links.  Which comments did you make?

    Have you tried restarting your computer?

      I didn't comment at all, but my profile pic is there. That's the problem.
