Is it just for me? Or do other people see it too? It's kinda annoying...

Dan - Alex answered the question pretty precisely -- the "Community" bot pokes at old, unanswered questions.

What about letting old and unimportant threads die? Did you see the question?

If such threads annoy you, the fix is simple. Just upvote one or more of the answers (you can't upvote your own answer, though). Once an answer is upvoted, the question is no longer considered "unanswered" and will not be repeatedly bumped to the top.

That's done by the entity known as "Community" http://paleohacks.com/users/-1/community

One of the things Community does is "randomly poke old unanswered questions every hour so they get some attention".
