I just now noticed a glitch in PF that seems to have started happening today. The revision time stamp on edited posts seems to have disappeared, if you are not logged in to PF. But the revision time stamps still appear, as usual, if you are logged in. Do other people notice this new bug? What is causing the edit time stamps to disappear, at the moment?

It was done on purpose. Is it a problem?

I just tried to think what purpose it might serve, and failed

But since I use the "remember me" login option, presumably it doesn't affect me anyway.

The more topic irrelevant noise is on the page the less Google tends to like it.

I don't see why a guest needs to know edit times, so didn't think it was a big deal.

Sometimes posts get edited in response to a later post, but I don't think it's a big deal either, compared with Google targetting PF with ads for clocks, or editing software
