    Phantom Posts

    Does anyone else keep getting a 'New Posts' figure shown, when there are actually no unread posts?
    This morning it showed that I had three unread, so I clicked on 'Mark Forums Read', and cleared then. At teatime, I think the figure was 13, which again, I cleared. I'm currently being told that there are 18 New Posts, but again there are none.
    I've had an odd one 'phantom' posts, but nothing like as many as today. I do seem to remember that Malka had a similar problem some time ago.

    It happens from time to time, so if it shows X number of New Posts I check and if there are none I hit Mark All Forums Read or whatever it is.

    I think it is a bug in the system but if it is I do not think it is anything major. Just rather frustrating when it happens.
