Posts in "Article" category are not Muted

  • I'm going to specifically name out the category and auto tracking, as that is what I have set, and I feel the issue may be tied into how the system is "auto-posting" the topics.

    Possible it's not going through the correct code paths since that topic is created via the API.. something @sam would have to check.
