If the envelopes with or w/o letters in it are supposed to signify the NEW post than
shouldn't all the new threads start off w/ an open envelope or have letters inside? Once you have read or seen whatever is in the thread it could than change to a closed envelope. Doesn't make any sense to me to start off with a closed envelope. Confusing to comprehend.
Plus, the blue/pink envelope thing is distracting and of little value. Who really cares if 150 people viewed the post or not? It could be a blank post and it still get turned into a HOT pink thread.
