Coming back to this site after a long time, I noticed that some of the threads and forums were marked as read, although I had not read or opened them .

We use a "Database Read Marking Limit" of 10 days, which means the user read times for threads are stored in the database for up to 10 days, and so when a thread goes unread by a user for more than 10 days, it is considered read. This way the associated tables do not grow inordinately huge and store data that will largely go unused. :)
