This is not about the server-side/browser-side storage issue for new comments. It's a lot simpler: When you navigate to, at the bottom of each diary where it says "Permalink — 143 Comments / 143 New", every post lists 100% of comments as new.

    It's a high priority for us, but at this point it may have to wait until after the election, unfortunately. We're just running out of time.

    Don't know if it was intended to or not, but looks like the new push on Dec. 4 did not solve this problem. (I mention it only because I see that comment counts have moved up to the top.)
