    Could be posting rate statistics? In other words, how quickly does a new post get buried under the onslaught of posting that happens here. Might make an interesting graph - posting volume vs. time - you could see the time zone swings across the continents. Maybe.

    Currently there are posts up to 25 minutes old on the first page of that list. So it's not that they get buried so fast.

    You won't see it under New Posts if you're up to date -- if you've potentially read the latest post. Try using the link Today's Posts instead. The bold links will have new posts but the caught-up thread will still appear, as non-bold links.

    Yep. "New Posts" means "Recent Posts that you've not viewed yet". So, once you've viewed a post, it's not gonna show up under that

    Maybe it wasn't worth a thread but that's probably the only new thing I learned today.

    You could say, "at first I was nonplussed but now I am nonplussed": https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/us/nonplussed

    • 1 (of a person) surprised and confused so much that they are unsure how to react.

      ‘he would be completely nonplussed and embarrassed at the idea’

    • 2 North American informal (of a person) not disconcerted; unperturbed.
    Usage
    In standard use, nonplussed means ‘surprised and confused’: the hostility of the new neighbor's refusal left Mrs. Walker nonplussed. In North American English, a new use has developed in recent years, meaning ‘unperturbed’—more or less the opposite of its traditional meaning: hoping to disguise his confusion, he tried to appear nonplussed. This new use probably arose on the assumption that non- was the normal negative prefix and must therefore have a negative meaning. It is not considered part of standard English.

    - It's like when I played a Led Zep riff to my wife.
    * D'yer Mak'er?
    - No, she wanted to hear it.

    I actually want this thread to become one of those nebulous wormholes that eventually get locked by admins, or inevitably sinks to the bottom of the forum, under its own weight. It would be my first.

    In that case, why haven't you mentioned Bigfoot, dowsing, ESP or ghosts?

    Yeah, but linguistics are somehow:confused:connected to politics via Chomsky and that's a big taboo here.:D
