How has this become bumped into 'active'? the last post was in 2014.

no one else noticed it?

If it's on threads you're watching (I think), you can bump a thread without posting.

But it appeared on 'trending'? That was how I spotted it.

Didn't think to get a photo of the trending bit.

Doesn't trending just go off how many people are reading the Thread?

Ghost activity.

Is this the police auction thing? I read it too, didn't comment though!

Yes, Trending is based on views,not posts.

Because Martin Lewis just pimped police auctions on his show!

I've come across about six resurrected zombie threads today. The really weird thing is that nobody else seems to have clocked they're zombie threads! They're not Ines I was following either, some of them are from 2014 too...

Should say they were all in active threads... strange!!

Thanks for drawing our attention to this. It is unusual for such an old thread to pop up in trending. But more than likely one of those quirks of social media.

oh I see. weird! maybe to keep down the resurrection of zombie threads they should be based on posts not on views?
