Have held off on this for about a day, but I see the server's time stamping, or rather the ordering of posts in the forum based on those stamps), has gone a bit booboo.
Formerly they were up near the top, but now down near the bottom of the first page are threads with OP titles like 'Looking for the wine tasting place in Hong Kong' or 'A second chance, Case de Sonoma...1947' or 'Sonoma Valley' or.... I recognize these as being old threads because I posted in them at the time, but the last post for each thread is anywhere from June to December 2010. Vegas Oenophile's thread on the Vissani wine cellar is also in the mix, with a last post from July of this year. I haven't bothered looking at the second page.
Is this by any chance some sort of intentional recycling? ;-)
Server time stamp gone a bit haywire?

You know it, you know it!
In all seriousness, that made for a crazy day on the forum yesterday, hopefully all is back to normal.

There was a spammer who came in and posted on those old threads. We deleted the account and all of the posts, but the timestamps had been touched already.
If you see this in the future, this is what happened. Nothing to be alarmed about.

Thanks for the reply, Mark. There have been timestamp issues in the past, thus my OP.
