Why do threads I've hidden keep appearing in my search results?

I've noticed this happen a few times. I've been sure that I've hidden a thread only for it to appear when I AS. I then hide the thread again only for it once again to appear when I AS something confused.

Am I missing something here? I thought that when you hid a thread it was supposed to stay hidden until you decided to unhide it.

Generally if I've decided to hide a thread it's because I don't want to see it and I'm a bit confused when they then show up in my searches.

Hi there NewYearNewToads. We'll ask about this but we can we ask you what device and browser you're using and whether this is the mobile site, desktop site or app? Thanks!

Laptop. Chrome. Desktop site.

Admittedly I haven't used AS on my phone in a while so I don't know if it's the same on there. I'll have to check.

I've just tested this out using a very specific search which I know only produces a handful of results and a thread that I know for a fact should be hidden is still showing because I hid it earlier today.

Sorry, that was meant to be - a thread I know for a fact should be hidden because I hid it earlier today is still showing.

I actually think you might be right. I've never really thought about it before but I just assumed it would still be hidden when you AS.
