Not very similar threads - Ongoing

Now I'm well aware of the limits of computer intelligence, but ever since the "similar thread" feature was added to AO I have been puzzled and entertained by what the computer software's ideas of a similar thread happens to be.

I'd almost be willing to bet that nobody would guess which thread generated following list of suggestions:

I'd also be willing to guess that this is why a few old threads have suddenly come to life again. People click on ancient links thinking they are the "next thread" link as opposed to a similar thread.

Now I'm not sure if there is anything that can or even should be done about this feature, but for the most part, I don't think it's really helpful.
