I like the feature that threads I haven't read remain bolded with a marker to skip directly the first unread post within the thread. Its particularly helpful, when threads run to several pages and I couldn't know where I left off.
However, if sign on to find a dozen or so threads with unread messages and remain online for what seems to be several minutes, all the other unread threads become marked as read, even if I haven't opened them. Is this a setting that I can control?
