For a while now, since late last year, I've been having an issue where threads in Debate and/or Discourse - and nowhere else, as far as I can tell - seem to be tagging themselves as touched / partially read, and displaying themselves henceforth as blue, with unread message counts.
Assuming, as I must, that my own perceptions and memory are accurate - and that I am not randomly clicking on threads in which I have no interest, then forgetting that I did so - I can only speculate as what is happening. Perhaps the issue is on my end, such as an oversensitive mouse or other problem generating spurious clicks as I happen to pass over these threads; or perhaps it is something on this end, with thread IDs getting switched, or something
. I make this post as much to see if anyone else has observed similar behavior, or if it's just me, as in the search/hope of a solution.
[edited to focus more clearly on the observed issue]
