The comment above is missing a parenthesis in the timestamp 22:33, 9 November 2020 (UTC. As a result it is not detected as a comment, so it becomes part of the next comment. The next comment is now a mixed-level comment with a minimum level of 1 indentation, which is why the reply has 2 indentation.

Declining as I don't think it will ever be possible to support corrupted timestamps.
