Howdy IT dudes!
For a while now, I've been noticing something messed up about the 'Hide' function, and thought I might finally mention it to y'all. There are plenty of older threads that I had already hidden at some point, that are now starting to reappear. Some of them are just things I had no interest in. Some of them are troll threads. Some are threads that were locked forever ago.
Anyway, I was wondering if this was a flaw or a feature? Is it just built into the design that old threads which haven't seen action in a long while get "unhidden"? Or is that a kind of unforeseen loop whole? Or is it only designed to hide X number of threads, and once you pass that threshold number, things get wonky and start intruding back into sight? I've only ever noticed it in the Off-Topic section. Not sure if anyone else has noticed it elsewhere.
