Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm subscribed to the tag feed in Google reader: Sometimes the feed gets updated with a question, which is quite old and looking through the entire thread I don't see any recent changes, which might lead to the feed update. I mean, no new answers, no new comments, no new edits, etc.

Why is this happening? Am I missing something obvious?

The community user may have automatically bumped the question. It's purpose is to highlight slightly old questions so that they get more attention/responses/answers. It randomly picks eligible questions.

This makes perfect sense - I forgot that @Community is watching everyone ;-) – Yan Sklyarenko Oct 5 '11 at 14:09
