Anyone else find the "check-marks" useless?

The marks, which are supposed to tell you if there's any new material in a thread, don't do so half the time. Or they WILL show as new stuff, when there isn't any!

Must be made by Chrysler....
I don't bother looking at those- just scroll.
Some boards have 'mark all threads as read' buttons, which make it easier to see what you've looked/glanced at and what you haven't. Here I get kind of lost...
The check marks are almost as useless as signatures.
