Comment (by sterlo):

 Replying to [comment:5 markjaquith]:
 > The default has been that querying the posts in a category queries posts
 in all subcategories. But there is a difference between being implicitly
 in a category (due to heritage) and being explicitly in a category (due to
 user selection). If we checked all parent categories, the distinction
 between implicit and explicit would be lost.

 Thank you!
