Old Threads in Hot Posts

Was just perusing Hot Posts and came across a post, Vanilla Beans from Fairway, from two months ago that had no new replies. Most recent reply was also two months ago.

Noticed something similar a couple of days ago, but didn't make note of the URL.

Just some kind of glitch, I presume. But it's interesting that there were a couple of other Hot Post threads about vanilla/vanilla beans at the same time.

  1. I've seen a number of these as well.

    1. Me too. I think this is another reason for the resurrection of some hoary threads.

      1. Now that's interesting. I just clicked on the link I sent you above and see there was indeed a new post from just about the time I sent you the link. But I could have sworn it wasn't there when I first copied it. The thread isn't that long and I was looking specifically for a new addition. And other people, "Why Do Old Topics Come Back" on the Site board, don't seem to have seen the new post either. My [our?] oversight, perhaps. Or some kind of timing glitch?

        1. Here's one from 5 years ago that popped up in Hot Posts that has no new content at all.
