Hi! Love Chowhound. Thank you all for managing this site. Loved Jim's post on why your post was deleted. But I digress. My question is: why does the number of shown threads slowly diminish as I keep reading the hot posts. It usually shows unread posts from 1-70. Then all of a sudden when I return to it, it only shows maybe 5. I always like to go the the hotposts first and then go to my favorites topics. But the longer I am on, the shorter the list gets. Is this a common thing? Just curious. Thanks!
