Thank God we're here to validate that we're all not going crazy!
You're right, Rob, it isn't just that they're sorting from newest first - which I think is good - but they are mixing them up and in fact, I think some posts have disappeared or in new cases, just not there! For example, on BQ's "Cars" post, it appears he said something today, but open and viola! nothing! The programmer smoked too much yesterday.
