Zero reply threads' "last posts" claim "today" even though as much as 45 hours old
Zero reply threads' "last posts" claim "today" even though as much as 45 hours old

Zero reply threads <https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/lqsearch.php?do=noreplies>

Example:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ce-4175643120/
shows last (original) post as today, which is 2018-11-28 ~18:00 UTC, but was originally posted 2018-11-26 20:53 UTC.

Another example:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...-a-4175643233/ (the second post listed) displayed as "today" at 12:44 local time was originally posted 2018-11-27 20:44 local time.

Local time here is GMT-0500.

The net effect is that zero reply posts are being periodically recycled back to top of list until they catch a reply, making them look like the same post is being recreated anew, dejavu.

This is a result of the zero reply bump.

A thread that doesn't receive a reply will be bumped after 48 hours in an effort to get it more exposure.

It defeats the implications from the thread title that: 1-threads be sorted by increasing age; 2-time since creation be apparent. I might be interested in responding to any particular thread because of old age, and won't because it's always articifically too new.
