That happens to me also, Michelle. That feature on this web site is not too reliable. It also happens when I open a thread and see, say, 6 messages in the thread unread then when I read one the other 5 messages are no longer marked as new.
This has been one of my big pet peeves but so far one that they haven't been able to correct at the big server in the sky. They claim it is a glitch in the system and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Go figure. I wish they would get it working reliably as well.

When I got home tonight and logged on every d@mn message board had "new" next to every thread even though some of them haven't had an update in months. It's annoying as hel1. If it doesn't get fixed I'm going to the "other" boards........................................NOT!
