The Bug Swatter forum was closed down a few days ago because this version of the software has been pretty stable for a while. The fact that you were able to post in it is indicative of your problem, though.
When you went to the main forum page, you didn't get it from our web server. Instead, you got an older copy it from a cache, which is why you saw the listing for Bug Swatter. Caching is very common on the Internet, because it makes your connection seem a lot faster. The problem, of course, is that you often see "old" web pages. For many web sites, that's no big deal. For an interactive web site like the forums, however, it can cause a LOT of confusion. When you post a reply the web page changes. But you don't see the changes. You see the old page, still coming out of your cache.
The caching is "probably" being done by your browser (it could also be coming from your ISP, but we'll hope not). So, to tell you how to turn off the caching, we need to know what browser you're using. With luck, someone here in the forums will have the same browser and we'll be able to walk you through the necessary steps. If you can give the version number, that will help, too (you usually see it when you start the browser, and can also find it in the menus by going to Help, then About).
