    Precisely.
    So, if you posted a message, you have already seen it.
    Seems simple enough.
    to some, anyway.

    Looks like some button repainting needs urgent attention .

    I fail to see what else it could mean other than what it in fact does at the moment.

    A post arrives on the site with no entries in the SEEN file. As each member looks at it for the first time, a record of the event is made in the SEEN file for that member. Once a record exists in the SEEN file for that member, it is no longer presented as NEW when the NEW button is triggered. For as long as no such record exists the post is presented as NEW.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
