It’s quite a few actually. Those are the ones that I remembered off the top of my head.
Yea I was bored and spent my Saturday reading old Threadspotting threads. I went to The Brooklyn Museum of Art too, so I’m not a total loser.

I don’t know for sure, but my educated guess follows. I think they were threads that were started during the Lost Times, early Dec. to early Feb. We lost all the posts from that period becuase the backup medium had insufficient capacity to store them all. (That situation has since been rectified). After we got back online from the hacking incident, the old threadid numbers were then assigned to new, unrelated threads.

Ah! More repercussions from that dark, dark time.
