it would be possible, when the webservers clock is not synced the moment you submit a post. for example if the webservers date would be something in 2009 right now, my post would appear as a 2009-posting now.

as i said above, when the webservers time is not synced at that moment you submit the post.

because:

when you submit your posting the following happens:

the webserver looks up some information with the scriptlanguage php, such as ip address, all the forum information like your message, what forum you are submitting, and the actual date - and the date gets fetched from the local machine on most content management systems like this website. so if the date is at that moment 01.01.2009 then the post's date will also be 01.01.2009. theres no need for registration in 2009, just an unsynced clock.

you can also write the 2009 date right into the database (may it be cause you want it to do or may it be a bug in the software). it can also be a hacker. or a snail. more a hacker than a snail ;-p

ps: i dare to say, that in your list above, the system does not care if that post is made by a registered user (who was registered that time the post was made), it just looks up the dates from the posts and sorts them in the order you want.
