Next to my (our) username(s) at the top of the page is a little envelope that glows delightfully orange when someone's answered a question of mine, or commented on an answer, or commented on a comment (I think). It's always quite exciting to see, and I'm always terribly disappointed to click on it and see. . oh. . . the answer I was just looking at. Surely this can be kept track of, and StackOverflow needn't waste it's (my) time suggesting I look at. . . what I'm looking at it. In fact, it seems like the ONLY way to restore my little envelope to white is to click on it. Which seems silly.
