I was curious to "What's hot" in the dashboard and I decided to check it out. I noticed the "latest post" listed on my dashboard in the "What's Hot" part are absolutely not "latest". I see posts from dating back to 2007 (thechroniclesofdotnet and derricksfriends in example) as "latest".
I know these can't be the "latest" posts. But what is going on that I get these weird results?
