I am confused. when I post, the time is right. when people RESPOND TO ME, their response times are 5 hours in the future.
case in point: etoilepaix, you responded to my message at 1:45 this afternoon.
davitant: you responded to a message at 5:45 in the morning. Somehow, I don't think so.

edit: THIS JUST IN. my responses are coming in Grenwich Mean Time. The hell?

edit again: How did I never notice this before?
(from the LJ FAQ)
FAQ Question #156
» Why are my comments showing an incorrect time?
The timestamps on comments in journals using S1 display in the timezone of the LiveJournal servers, which is US Pacific Standard Time (-800 GMT) or, when applicable, US Pacific Daylight Time (-700 GMT). The timestamps on comments in journals using S2 display using the GMT timezone. The times on comments are automatically assigned when they are posted; there is no way to set or edit the time on a comment.

When viewing comments anywhere on LiveJournal, you will need to take into account this time difference in order to work out the local time at which the comment was posted.

I never look at comment times. I just make sure I read them in the right order. What got me for a while was how my friends list shows up in order by local times form the posters, because I have people on there from all over the world, especially in communities, and it's pretty much mind bending to see Sunday, Tuesday, and Monday showing up, in that order, all in a row.
