See this question, which according to OP was posted in october 2016: Systematic Component of Variation, and its comment thread:

I put the question in October 2016. There is something wrong in the time setting of SO

but is dated as asked Apr 14 at 16:54 and presented as asked 8 months ago

So something is certainly wrong!

    $\begingroup$ The OP probably mis-remembers. The question was posted in April, saw little activity, and then was modified in November. $\endgroup$

As stated by whuber the OP in Systematic Component of Variation probably mis-remembered the date of posting, as he admit in one comment under the same question:

Maybe I was wrong.

It is ok to ask a question based on an OP's impression, but usually a bug would be something reproducible, able to collect evidence (e.g.: steps to reproduce the problem, screenshots, different users reporting same problem on different SE sites, etc).
