Bloglines needs an “Are You Sure” prompt for marking a lot of items read at once

I’ve been a bit behind on my feeds the last couple of days, with every intention of catching up soon.

Just now, I accidentally clicked on the top-level folder in Bloglines, which tells Bloglines to load and display all unread items in all feeds. A handy feature, but I had more than 2000 unread items. I think you can see where this is going…

Firefox barfed (actually, I stopped it, because I didn’t want to wait for everything to load). And all of those feed items were immediately marked as Read. Ooops.

Right now, I’d love to have an “undo last action” function in Bloglines, or a warning prompt that said something like “You’re about to mark as read/view a large number of items. Are you sure?” This has happened more than once, and yes, it’s because of an idiot mistake on my part every time, but still…

I expect that Mark Fletcher and the crew over at Bloglines will drop whatever they’re doing, and get right on coding and implementng this feature for me. 😉
