Getting my mind around the new setup: new/old posts

OK, so here's something I noticed, and I'm not sure how I feel about. I'm finding it awkward to explain, so bear with me if this isn't too concise.

It's about how posts are ordered on the new boards -- it seems to have to do with when someone last posted to a thread, rather than when it was first posted. Is that right? It's hard for me to get my mind around it. Example: on the outer boros board, someone replied this week to a post from several years ago (about Indian buffets in Jackson Heights). I couldn't tell from looking at the board that it's mostly an old post, I had to click through to the actual post to see the whole thread. It's sort of as if Hot Posts is now integrated into the main board - but at this point I'm finding it less informative, or clunkier, or something else that I can't get my finger on.

Maybe I'll get used to it over time, perhaps I'll come to prefer it. But for now - does anybody understand what I'm talking about, agree, disagree, whatever?
