After replying to Yaso's message, her status still remains the same. Here is the screenshot of the same.
Edit: I'm not saying that this couldn't be a problem. Just that I'm unable to replicate it at my end.

Thanks for trying this but there has to be something going on. I've been seeing this 100% of the time for at least the last few weeks.
I'll post another response after this.

Now I am really confused! This is the first time that the time has not updated to the time of my response in at least a few weeks. This is too weird!

Trying the same thing with Yaso.

A thought, I'm trying something.

There has to be an answer here. I am at a loss right now. All I can say is that I've seen no less than 50 or 60+ examples of this in the last couple of weeks alone. Users who were not logged on since as much as 1-3 days before my response and showed currently Offline. Then my response and their time updated to *MY* time and still showed them offline.
Way too much for coincidence.
I need to put on my software engineering hat and think outside the box and see if I can come up with the common denominator.
Yaso, you said earlier that you saw the same thing. Let's figure out the common denominator together.
Edit: Could this be specific to certain forums? The first example I showed was huwyngr and it showed that the time stamp changed with my response. Yet when I done the same with mdturner and Yaso it did not change. Huwyngr, did you happen to log on briefly during these few minutes of time when I posted those two responses?

Yes, I've seen the same thing; and yesterday, when I was replying to a poster who was online but idle (or who had not logged out properly [simply closed the browser window instead of actually logging out]), said poster's time changed to reflect the time of my answer. So it not only happens with offline users, but also with "idle" "online" users.
