H1 should apply to one element on the page, typically the headline/title of a post.

Currently, on The Den, H1 is applied to all of the following:

The outlining algorithm has been changed in HTML5 so each new sectioning root actually begins a new heading heirarchy. Multiple h1s in a single document is totally kosher now, and even correct. Of course, assistive technologies that render document outlines may not honor the new outlining algorithm, and search engines may not have updated their own algorithms yet to account for the latest standard, so there are good reasons to stick with a "traditional" hierarchy.
