Default Why do some threads say "LinkBack" rather than "View First Unread"?

Here is an example of "LinkBack": https://www.go2gbo.com/forums/130-to...-they-sow.html Where is the "View First Unread" for this thread?

there are others (I will find some additional URL examples of "LinkBack" and edit this post).

Most threads when opened say "View First Unread" and that quickly takes you to new posts. "LinkBack" doesn't help at all when a thread is multiple days old and there are many replies.

In the place of "View First Unread", "LinkBack" is unusable when looking for the latest post(s).

If you have already read the thread until the last page, "view first unread" will not show up anymore.
I looked into those threads and "view first unread" all shows up.

I agree with that. However, if I have not read through to the end (i.e. there is a new post), when I open that thread I should see "View First Unread", which is never the case.

When you open on of those threads that is multiple pages in length, what page do you get opened to? The first or the last?

I get the OP when I arrive. I am formatted to start at the OP (history) and then chronological to the latest (unread) post.
