Last night, just as I was heading off to bed, I posted one last response to the Does the Church require Catholics to oppose the 1st Amendment? thread. It was just after 2:30 AM,my time (EDT).
When I brought up the Great Debates Forum, this afternoon, I was surprised to see the last date/time stamp set at 12:02 AM, (CDT).
Afraid that I would have to re-create whatever post I had cobbled together in the middle of the night, I opened the thread and scrolled to the bottom, where I found my post, stamped 01:39 AM. At first I figured that my browser simply had a cached version of the Forum Display page, but then I noticed that it had new posts, as well.
I’ve gone in and out of the GD Forum page a few times, today, and the date/time stamp on that thread does not change.
It is hardly the end of the world, of course, but I am wondering why the Forum Display is not picking up the actual last post. Is there anything I might have done to cause it? (E.G., logging off without waiting for a confirmation that I had posted after 10 minutes, or so?) Or is this simply one more issue with the gerbils?
I have seen this happen before, but this is the first time I actually watched it happen to one of my posts when I knew that I was not imagining it.
