Let's imagine that 3 years ago somebody made a forum thread. It was posted in about 15 times that day and then it died.
3 years later somebody necroposts it. However, the necropost consists of something that violates the TOS (such as a link to a gay torture sex video or something). Nobody has a chance to see this thread for about 10 minutes, by which time Airmax has deleted the comment (and closed the person's account).
The post would've been 8 minutes ago, which would put that thread at the very top of the page. The second most recent post in that thread would've been 3 years ago.
What happens to the thread? Does it glitchingly stay at the top of the page with a "last post; 3 years ago" or does it suddenly move back several pages to where it was before?
