It seems that the problem is that, as soon as an Anonymous ATS reply is made, the thread's 'modification time' is updated, and it moves at the top
of the recent threads list. This happens before the moderators decide whether or not to allow the post, and is confusing. If an Anonymous posting is
not approved, the thread is still bumped, it appears!
While I understand that the all posts should eventually be placed in the thread in the order posted (Anonymous or not), and that requires some
sequencing in whatever database backend ATS uses, the overall thread modification date/time should not be updated, if the last post is
Anonymous, until the post is approved by a moderator.
At least that how I would expect it to behave.
