I've noticed that when I scroll through the "Questions" for Superuser.com that sometimes questions show up as "recent" when from my perspective they are any but recent.
By that I mean I look at the date for the question, the answers, and the comments, and all of them are months ago. Yet the summary
latest activity for the question will have the status
Here's a link to one example: Disable internal display on Macbook Pro without closed lid mode? Perhaps I'm just overlooking the latest activity in which case please just show me where I went wrong. But I didn't see anything newer than Dec 2009.
What's up with this? Because this happens I've found myself wasting time trying to answer questions that no one probably gives a fig about any longer because so much time has passed.
