Calculated read time is high though there is only one post

I noticed that the read time shown at some topics seems very high compared to the number of posts.
For example, there is only one post at the Custom Wizard Plugin 🧙 topic, but the read time is more than 3 hours.


Are deleted posts included when the read time is calculated?

Hah, yeah, I don’t think you need a full 3 hours to read that topic. Good attentive eye!

Looking at https://meta.discourse.org/t/custom-wizard-plugin/73345.json… the posts_count there is correctly 1… but the word count is 95026 :exploding_head: — looks like this isn’t being updated when replies are deleted.

I also notice that there are 31 links listed… so those are coming through deleted replies as well.

Oh my… this is a double bug:

Post Revisor is not excluding posts with deleted_at not null

And Post Destroyer does nothing: discourse/lib/post_destroyer.rb at 45abb67f432bd009ca1bfef3e7735e632a4299fd · discourse/discourse · GitHub

So there is no workaround here even.

We will sort it out
