Marking all site stories as read now marks shared stories as read, too

So I don't know if it was intentional, (like to solve https://getsatisfaction.com/newsblur/... ), but it definitely didn't used to behave this way: mark all as read for all site stories now also marks as read items in shared stories.

The division between these two types of stories is a bit awkward. If they were both displayed together, then fine, mark them all as read. But as they are separate, this change in behaviour is surprising.

I didn't change anything, but it should only be marking your subscriptions as read and not unread shared stories.

Well, I don't know what to say, it has changed for me...here's a screencast showing the behaviour:

Anything else I can do to help debug?

I found some shared stories marked as read, but I believe that is due to the background updating. I typically mark previous as read, but am sure news blur is adding earlier stories to the list AFTER I've marked that timescale as read. So, next time I mark previous as read, it marks the new ones as read also. So even though I haven't seen them, they were there.

So what's happening in that screencast is that the story that is shared is also a feed you subscribe to.

OK I had a look at this again today, and it definitely removed 4 links that were not in my feeds, I have not subscribed to those sites. One was this story from The Dish. http://dish.andrewsullivan.com/2014/12/10/the-truth-about-torture-revisited/
