If I go to a forum (VB.Net in this case) I see a number of threads marked as NEW. I select one thread somewhat down the list and open it. I respond to the question, then redisplay the VB.Net threads. All of the NEW flags have now been removed. Is this by design? My expectation is that the NEW flags should not be reset until I have actually opened the associated thread, or clicked "Mark Forum Read". If all of the NEW flags get reset then I can't determine which threads I have visited.
