Zero reply threads are automatically bumped at 16 hours and 32 hours. This is done in order to have the thread appear in the active list for LQ'ers who live in distant time zones, and thus give the thread better exposure. As a result, you may see a thread that is timestamped from the day before mixed in with other threads that are timestamped with more recent dates/times. -- J.W.

There are also bad times in other parts of linuxquestions.org

I found that at threads with 0 replies ("more" button) there are also bad times.

For example this thread is post at 03:26:43, but 0 replies list shows time 19:44:00.

Yes -- but that thread (currently) has not received any replies, and because it has not received any replies for at least 16 hours, it has been automatically bumped. (Note that the auto-bump does not change the original post timestamp) Note that there is just over 16 hours between the 2 times you mentioned. As an aside, I believe the auto-bump function runs at approx 45 minutes past the hour, which corresponds to the 19:44 timestamp. -- J.W.
