TA app-- why auto mark forum as read?

I use the TA app exclusively, and I've noticed an issue that is rather bothersome.

Sometimes I just want to check the app and view a new article, without reading the forum. But the moment I open the app, it will mark the forums as "read" even though I never clicked the forum button. Usually I'll stop by the forums after work but during the day I just check articles.

Is there a reason just opening the app sets your flag for reading the forums? Would much prefer that all topics are still "new" until I actually click to read the forum threads. As it is now, I can't rely on the orange "new" marker to truly indicate what I have not read today.
