Why Are Old Forum Topics Always Showing Up In the RSS Feed? Answered

I realise it is because when someone comments on them/edits the page, but why do I have to keep seeing repeats every five minutes?

Comments

The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

The RSS can't tell if you checked the thread since it's last update.

Some systems can - if a thread gets a reply on The Science Forums, I get a single email, and nothing more until I check the reply or replies.

Well, shouldn't it just show topics when they're first posted? There's no reason to show it any other time.

Oh, and I mean the feed for the forum topics, not my comments.
