Why is this chapter called “The Lightning Struck Tower”? was chosen as a Hot Network Question. Not very odd, but what is odd, as you can see, is that this action was recorded 26 times. I checked the timestamps and they are all showing 2020-09-13 01:41:08Z... so it looks like there is or was an issue with the recording of HNQ entries in associated question's revision history.

Can staff take a look at what happened here?

    Almost as bad as something like this (not a bug).

    Apparently this bug is fixed now, see Yaakov Ellis's answer on main meta. (Edit: urgh, I posted that as an answer, but the system converted it to a comment. Ah well, the tag and Glorfindel's answer will do.)

This is a (well-)known bug, see my Meta Stack Exchange question Very hot network questions found. Staff is aware of it, but the priority is

Very low since it doesn't appear to affect actual functionality.

    Thanks, surprisingly this is the first time I've seen it for something that is happening network-wide and for well over a year now. I guess changing page line-height is a higher priority...
