Knowing if you've read all the comments.

Most modern browsers tell you if you have already visited a link. What i'm suggesting is a way to know if you've already read all the comments of a story by tricking the browser into thinking you havn't visited the link when you have, by having a dummy parameter on each "read more" link that is the auto generated to be the time that the last comment was submitted. so the next time you load the page, it will be a new link if new comments have been submitted and an already browsed link if no new comments are availiable.
