what does "no new messages" really mean?

Sometimes, I'll see a thread that indicates there are new messages. But it's a thread that I'm not really interested in, so I don't read it. The next day, I happen to notice that the thread is now marked "no new messages".

Is there something that automatically marks all messages as read every so many hours?

Or does "new messages" mean new="unread, but posted in the past 24 hrs," rather than new="unread"?

More or less it is based on your last visit time. It looks at the threads and marks any of them that are new from the last time stamp from your last time you were on.

This can be messed up by like proxy servers and also the amount of time you spend on the site. Example...after like 20 mins it may reset.
