I have been so misled by the Rankings Explanation for Who's Hot. It says the rankings reflect point totals earned by players over the past 2 weeks. However, the rankings are actually calculated from the total points earned only from puzzles that were posted during the last 2 weeks, and so points earned by solving old expert puzzles from the Archives don't count at all. I feel so betrayed that I think I will have to do another expert puzzle just to take my mind off it.

I don't know about "intentional" but it's certainly negligent. :)
