Please forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask this question; I wasn't sure where it would be appropriate.

I grabbed a public dump of MathOverflow from here. I'm interested in analyzing the time stamps but unfortunately the time zone is not specified. What is it?

    $\begingroup$ I think likely it is UTC, as the other timings in MO. -- At least everything else would seem somewhat strange ... . $\endgroup$

All dates and times should be in UTC. That's true on the site itself as well, with the occasional exception of chat (and even there, it's UTC internally).
