I have seen this several times already (also on other SE sites), but only captured it in a screenshot now.

The question shown below came up in the "active" question view. It shows that user Robert performed some activity on the question five hours ago. enter image description here

However, when I go to the question I don't see anyone named Robert that left a comment (or performed another activity) recently.

So what does this mean? Is it a bug? Is it a feature I don't understand?

p.s. I am sorry I picked a question of myself, it's not to boost views, just a coincidence.

In this case it's fairly simple: I deleted the response as it wasn't an answer. That happens a fair bit, usually from people who find the question using Google and responding without realizing that this isn't a discussion forum. At sufficient rep, you'll be able to see the deleted info.
