Comments that I already read showing up as unread

Why are comments that I just read showing up as unread? When I read all the comments in a diary and reload it so that the "# new" disappears, shortly after it shows all the comments as unread. Nothing changed in my setup at all today, and this issue started less than an hour ago.

    Did you clear cookies, or could your cache be running at maximum use?

    Those aren't the only things that will produce this result, but the record of which comments you've read is kept on your computer (which is why if you're using more than one device to read DK, what you look at one one device won't be shown on another) rather than on the DK servers..

    I always cleared my cache, and never cleared cookies. I cleared my cache for months, and had no problems until now.
