I just saw the "Jim March just finished Filming 'the debate show'" thread in the general gun discussion. The first post has what I think a May of this year post date. Is there something wrong with the date routine as I think this is a wrong date or am I looking at the wrong thing? It looks as if this thread was started today as I do not remember seeing it before.

Let me know if you need more information.

The date is correct. That thread was started back in May, but was just recently posted to today. Take a look at the dates in all of the posts. You'll see a steady progression of dates from the date it was started up until today.

This is typical of when someone resurrects a long-buried thread. It is easy to assume that the thread is new, even though it is months or even years old.

Hope this helps. :)
