Forum help, how can I...

keep new threads from automatically being marked "read"?

To be more specific, when I log on, I have a large number of unread threads, usually about 500 or so. Then, if I have to get up and leave my computer for a few minutes I come back and hit the "new posts" link and there is only 25 or 30 new posts, even after "getting ALL new posts", even though I didn't read them. Can I change a setting to prevent this automatic mark posts as read?

I don't know if there is a way either.
I just remember to look how many pages there are when I first get on, and then under new posts go to "1 day" and click back through the posts. It's more difficult and a lot more scrolling, but I still get to see the threads.
