Back in 2003 -- when the "old" 15k search was at it's high time -- the entrance level for the Top5000 database was at about n=110000. Since the goal of this project was to find as many primes as possible, most of the users started their search at n=110k or just at the bottom of the Top5000 table. So, I wouldn't call it the "most erroneous post" -- you would probably find many more similar incorrect postings. But I agree with you, that everybody should double check her/his postings for clarity and consistency.
