Ghost posts are not actual posts. Anyway, why are you clicking them? :eyebrow: They'll go away when people post in those threads.

It seems that the posts being referred to are still being shown as the "last post" and as "unread posts" despite having been deleted, sounds like a glitch somewhere.

Not a glitch. The database contains several tables. One contains the post. Another contains the history of latest posts. Mod-deleting from one table doesn't automatically impact the other table.

OK, I'd always assumed it was an automated process since I've never seen the latest post history refer to a deleted post before. Thanks for the clarification Fris!
