WTF now LJ?  
Just noticed that the time and date of my last post bear no relation to the actual time and date it was made, making a nonsense of the title line. It was actually posted in the wee smalls of Sunday morning,(8th) some time around 1am IIRC. Really not sure what happened there....
So far so good now - the correct time and date are showing at the moment. Let's see what happens when I click "Post".

And great. The "Select Tags" link still isn't working, and when I hover over it, it identifies as "Update". That's really bizarre.

ETA: it's 9.43pm on Monday 9th.... *sigh*

It's displaying more like London time, which would be lovely if I was there, but I'm not! *pout*. I've just raised a Support Request with LJ because it's just getting ridiculous. Even on the main page the menu items don't work for me - no drop-down boxes any more - meaning I can't manage my flist or even load icons at the moment. The tags thing was mucking up on Sunday morning but it was fine on Friday night, leading me to believe that LJ itself has made some coding changes that have had some unexpected results.

Weird. Although my "select tags" function is working.

I'm curious to see what time I'll get for this comment.

My comment time is right.

Oh now this is just getting silly! When I look at my journal your comment time is January 9th at 9.53pm (which is the correct time here - four minutes ago) but when I open this dialogue box to reply to your comment, it tells me you left your comment at 11.53am. Yay for replying to an entry I'd yet to post!

See, I'm seeing that comment time listed as 9th January 2012 06:53 which was the correct time here... but then I have my LJ set to local time (EST) and I'm seeing your reply comment time in my local time too (9th January 2010 06:58.

Thank you for letting me know. Hopefully all of this information will be useful to the lj boffins in trying to diagnose my problem.

Might be a silly question, but have you checked your lj settings? Maybe they were accidentally changed somehow, and it's just a case of changing them back... You never know! *g*

I had a similar thought last night and went to check my settings but the hover over/click on menus at the top of my lj page no longer work :-( . I can't load icons, I can't change settings, I can't manage friends.... I've raised a support request, we'll see how that goes.

So far I haven't had any problems with either time/date or tag selecting. Although, another 'friend' on my LJ was complaining that her "select tags" link wasn't working for a while. It's weird why some people are affected and others aren't. That's LJ for ya!

It's really odd. Apparently people using the firefox/greasemonkey combination had trouble with icons when the last lot of changes was rolled out - I was one of those people so I uninstalled greasemonkey and everything was fine - until Sunday morning. Ah well, will wait and see....
