A glitch with the web site
GBA readers may notice that at certain times of day, the links on the “Recent Questions and Replies” box on the home page lead to 5- or 6-year old threads with no new comments. This is irritating and misleading.
Here’s the explanation: When a spammer posts an ad on an old thread, I delete the spam. Our software has a glitch, however, and the software fails to understand that the recent comment was deleted. Therefore the “Recent Questions and Replies” box continues to display a link to an old thread with no new comments.
Our tech team is working to fix this problem. In the meantime, my apologies.
