O.K., you know when you do the "view new posts" thing let's say it comes up with about 30 (or whatever number depending how long it's been since your last visit) new posts? Well, I've noticed that if you first check and then click on the e-mail notifications that will count as your "last visit" and in effect it wipes out those new posts! So the moral of the story is to view the new posts first and then check for your e mail notifications. Does this make sense or is it in my imagination??
