I wonder if it has something to do with not having seen a new post on a previous page from the even newer post. To wit, if since the last time you looked, someone has posted the last post on, say, page five and someone else has posted a new post to begin page six, then perhaps if all you check out is page six the boards are letting you know you actually haven't seen all of the new posts.

Just a guess.

I do get that legitimately from time to time. One of the sub-forums has a post that I read, then go back to the main page forgetting about the post in the forum proper, but more often, it's just a glitch where it doesn't read the timestamp correctly or something.

Good idea, though, it's the simple stuff like that which is often overlooked.
