That shouldn't happen. Normally, the next time you enter the group, all
previously read message should be hidden and the information, that they
have been read remembered.

Could it be, that you exit Gnus by just closing the Emacs window instead
of shutting down Gnus with the 'q'-Key in summary buffer? In this case
it might happen, that Gnus doesn't write to disk and loses all information...

Have you ever considered how much text can fit in eighty columns?  Given that a
signature typically contains up to four lines of text, this space allows you to
attach a tremendous amount of valuable information to your messages.  Seize the
opportunity and don't waste your signature on bullshit that nobody cares about.
