When I log on after being gone all during the day and the post count is over 2000 new posts I almost always log off and wait an hour or so to log back on. This drops the new count down to a reasonable number. Then I check the new posts. Anyone else do similar? I figure the important threads will have the new messages the second time and I just do not have the patience to weed through 2000 new posts. Another one I hate is when I am interested in a new thread and I sleep during the day, that evening it will have jumped like 8 pages. I just give up on the thread. Usually.
