Perhaps the monitors can explain an interesting phenomenon that I have noticed when clicking on threads that have multiple pages. Typically, when I click on such a thread (especially one that is not currently being viewed by others), I am the only one shown viewing this thread. But as I click on subsequent pages (especially by page 6 or so), more and more "guests" are shown at the bottom of the page as viewing this thread.
This is peculiar and especially noticeable if one clicks on an old "dormant" thread with many pages (say from the sub-forum, "On the Road...
" and I have observed this as a guest as well as a signed in member.
Is there some explanation for this phenomenon?
