Incorrect timestamps in profiles

I submitted a new topic recently then viewed my profile. My profile lists the topic as having been created "about 5 hours ago" when in reality it was less than 20 minutes ago. This issue seems to be related to timezones. The thread listing page lists the creation time according to EST. I myself am from Britain and am therefore using GMT. The "x time ago" feature does not seem to take the different timezones into account and is therefore wildly inaccurate.

The profile page, including my current time:

The topic:

Just thought I'd point it out. not sure if this is the right place to do it or anything but it seems most suitable. perhaps it might be a good idea to add forum descriptions for new users such as myself?
