Weird problem which causes re-posts of old articles on this NG

I have notice that occasionally, old articles show up again on this NG. I know it is the browser which keeps track of what is read and not read. For instance, this morning there were some 120 "unread" articles. I marked everything late last night as "read." I know many of these articles where from several days ago. So, is this a problem with my browser? My ISP? or what? Does anyone else see this? BTW, I don't usually see this on other newsgroups.

If you mean that you are getting *duplicate* messages marked as unread, this was happening for me on all newsgroups several months back. An ISP problem, I think.
If you mean that there are no duplicates marked as unread, but the *same* messages are now marked as unread, I'd guess a browser/newsreader problem at your end.

I've seen it on others at different times. Seems like a newsfeed will regurgitate and propagate them again for some reason.

If you're using software that "covers your tracks", that could cause such things.

I recall some years ago when the newsgroups got completely screwed up. I never found out why, but (for example) alt.home.repair had messages from alt.politics and alt.computers and alt.children, and those newsgroups had messages from home.repair and other groups. In other words all the newsgroups were mixed up. Trying to read any of it was total chaos. I finally just flushed all the messages and a few days later all was fixed.
This newsgoup is busier than many others, so you may notice problems more on here
I occasionally post messages and they never appear. That's pretty annoying, but when it comes to computers, they have never been perfect and I guess we all just need to cope with the problems. I did notice though that if I post messages that contain certain words used as spam, my posts do not appear, so I guess my ISP or newsserver filters. My ISP denies it, but they got another company deal with NGs. But I know for fact I can not post a message with the words "Credit Card" in the subject line, but CAN post it as Creditcard. I learned this when trying to ask about some credit card info.
Then too, my ISP has spam filters for email. I have a friend who never uses a "subject" when he sends email. so they alwways get lost in the email spam filter. I think I finally convinced my friend to use a subject.
The internet will always have problems !
