The below message bumped to the top of this forum today.
Check out the dates. I had always thought in the past that somone posted to a years old thread but as you can see,that's not the case here.

RE: Strange occurrence

I think I can explain that. I happened to see that thread on the "Most Recent Posts" earlier.

Someone had posted to that thread today -- but in violation of the site's advertising policy (they were promoting somebody's HVAC business, IIRC). Apparently the Powers That Be removed the offending post; however, the software knows the thread was updated today, and so the thread remains where it is, even though today's post is now gone. That's my assumption, anyway.

RE: Strange occurrence
