I keep getting ancient threads showing up there. Usually I notice before I bump a thread from 2007, but is that settings on my end or the site's end?

This got me too. I responded to a thread from 2008, trying to be funny. Thankfully, @Derg was hella cool about it.

Now I check the dates before posting. This one says 3 hrs ago. So I'm good, I think.

Concur. WTF, over?
It's not just that an old post shows up now and again. It seems every post showing up as "Popular Right Now" is ancient.
Can we blame bots?

It's been turned off. Basically it looks at the statistic in a literal sense. Search engine traffic up to the minute, inbound visits, all without respect to freshness or whether or not the traffic is from registered users.
