Why do so many posts have the date "Posted Thursday 1st January 1970 (01:00am)"
on them? I am serioulsy SO lost on that aspect.
I'll try to explain to the best of my knowledge: There was once an event with PT (a server change, perhaps?) and this caused all the posts to be set to the default of the earliest date possible, which in this case would be 1/1/1970, despite that PT wasn't even around then. So all posts that were made before that are marked as such, even if they only happened in 2000 or 2002 or whatever. All posts made after that event are marked correctly but you'll still see 1/1/1970 on posts, even though that's not when they were really made it's just the default date that all posts were given during the event. New posts made after that were able to rewrite the default with the correct date, but all the posts made before that event lie dormant and marked 1/1/1970. Dead Smilie
