why do the most

important post never make it to the "top recent topics"? I have noticed this more and more on the DP. Relevant threads with lots of up votes are left in the dust, while generally non or less important matters flood the top recent topic box. Particulary last week when the site was flooded with sandy hook conspiracies. Which I do find important and I for one do not believe the medias story, just like anything on the tell a vision. I dont get it. Who are the moderators for this site, and what determines if something is front page or in the top recent, is it by most viewed or voted or commented? Or does a select group of people control what is front page and what is top recent?
