Default Wrong Time......... why ???

My posting times are off by 6hrs.
My clock is set correctly on my computer, and I set the Time Zone for 'Eastern USA'.......... in Pennsylvania.
But my post read 6hrs. behind..... should be 11:40am not

Any thoughts?????

That means the website times are wrong, because PA. s/b GMT- 5hrs, and San Diego s/b GMT- 8.
Minnesota s/b Gmt-6hrs.........
I emailed the site yesterday, but I got no reply.
*San Diego....... spent 3yrs. there ......great city.
**Minnesota...... great fishing/boating

Thank you for the reply. I reset my time settings to
GMT +1 to get the post time correct.
But my point was...... I believe the time zone settings in the
Profile menu are wrong.
We in the Eastern USA are GMT-5 not GMT+1.
See link below,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, correct me if I'm wrong.
* Nice Avitar.........

Best wishes.....

It does to me.........
I try to fix problems, not work around them. When I have a problem with my computer...... like I had with my BIOS problem; see post in Hardware, I worked on it and came here for help.
I managed to fix the problem myself, but I did ask for help, and I appreciate the posters who tried to help.
Thanks for the reply.........

hmmm, never paid attention to mine... let me post to see what it says:
