    I've been struck by this, also. If I try to mark the posts as read, I get the error message. But when I go back to the boards, the posts are gone. More troubling is not getting to older posts on Hot Posts.

        The "mark as read" problem is fixed. Thank you.

        Clicking on the "Older" link to get to topics 41 + still returns the 404 error.

          Those are both old links to the old software version of the boards. Unfortunately they no longer work.
