Missing newspost by Gabe for 'Spottage'

I was told that this forum has been used to report when content from the main site goes missing, sorry if this isn't the right place for it.

There's a post from Gabe on the day 'Spottage' was the latest comic (May 04th, 2020). Later that day Tycho's newspost also has the comic's title, so the link from the preview of Gabe's takes you to Tycho's instead (because the url is the date and title). Also, the previous post navigation button ('<') from Tycho's 'Spottage' newspost just reloads it, but works fine for other posts, so I'm assuming it's the same underlying problem. Likewise, trying to navigate forward from the newspost before Gabe's ('Assassin's Swede' by Tycho) just skips over to Tycho's 'Spottage'.

Oddly, the preview for Gabe's 'Spottage' newspost is the text from Tycho's newspost for the following comic, 'The Grapes of Math' (May 06th). Not sure how that happened, though.

Anyway, I'm curious if whatever Gabe had posted on the 4th is just lost, or if it can be recovered? I'm guessing that if it hasn't been overwritten entirely, and if you can change the title, that might fix everything.

If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    As noted on the other thread, I see a Gabe post for Spottage if I look at the posts here and scroll down:
    https://www.penny-arcade.com/news

    But otherwise, same problems you reported.

    What's weird is that the text showing in Gabe's post there (as with the preview that was showing on the main page) is Tycho's post for The Grapes of Math. If Gabe's had simply been overwritten in the file system by Tycho's Spottage post, that'd make sense, instead it's transposing the body of a yet another post from a different day.
