Specific example: if I have a notification that says "There is/are xxx new topic(s) on the board you are tracking" and I browse on over to that board and I don't see any new topics. I would surmise that this is because the topic that generated this notification is moderated with deletion. As this now means there is no longer a new topic to be viewed, the notification is no longer pertinent and I've wasted my time clicking on the notification, which defeats the purpose.
So are we so different? Of course, we are, and you will be even more different if I ever finish my homemade flame thrower.

It could also be self deleted, and it's only a minor annoyance, but I agree.

Don't try to think we can understand each other. For some reason, people think that they can do that. Remember that they can't. Never completely. Never enough.

That's not enough to be a time waster, but it could get one all excited for nothing if it was something they were waiting for a reply about, etc.

Low on the priorities, yeah, but sure...I hit you with a...
