Yeah, I found the reason why but it was too late
It's never too late
You could update that subtitle with a version that is again suitable for the given movie names
you could ask an admin to delete those hashes.
Preferably the first option, otherwise the hashes will be gone - a pity.
And the best would be to upload the subs for version 720p.BluRay.x264-HD4U [PublicHD] separately, and of course using software which includes the hash.

Anonymous subs can be updated by admins. I think it is NOT a good idea if anonymous subs can be updated by anybody, because not everybody is as sharp as you are. I think probably most are not. Making anonymous subs "public domain" as in 'do what you want', things will turn out exactly like that. The subs will be mass-raped.
This is how I do it / how it happens sometimes:
- An anonymous subtitle is not very good.
- An improved version appears.
- Admin takes that improved version and updates the old 'bad' version.
Reality is that the vast majority of subtitles are not being improved. Or they are changed by users thinking they are improvements but actually are not...
Actually, the same thing can/does happen with subs with 'ownership', when the improvements are done by someone else than the initial uploader.

As said, anonymous subs can be changed/improved. Also, having only subs with ownership does not mean they will be improved better or more often. For the users: remaining anonymous is easier than registering. Allowing anonymous subs just increases uploads - and yes, quite some of those are not so good or plain trash. In some languages sections uploads which are anonymous AND automated (API) are disabled.
