Taking two threads as examples from the Hub::
Athiest Religion/Technological resurrection (Lists of Threads shows last poster was Pragmatic, 11th Apr when the last poster was me, ZeffD).
My Dialog With A Muslim Extremist, (List of Threads shows JeffVL 9th Apr when the last poster was Chimp3).
It seems that the Forum doesn't correctly indicates when and who last posted on any given thread. This means that people have to keep checking which is time wasting and means the threads count far more "views" than should be required. I don't know if anything can be done to correct this.
