Yes, I've used them. Reddit, Digg, Stackoverflow, and Slashdot do *not* 
show you what you have and have not read. I've used other fora too, and 
they don't show either. They'll show what *thread* I've clicked on 
before, but not what I've read. (And how could they, when all the 
messages are expanded on one page?)
