Unhappy Suggestion: Move the Mark Forums Read menu function

Currently in the main menu bar under Forums, the "Mark Forums Read" function is right next to "New Posts", which results in me mis-clicking about 25% of the time and marking everything as read. Could "Mark Forums Read" be moved to the bottom or something, or at least moved in between some functions it's less adversarial toward?

Maybe you could change it from:
  1. Categories
  2. Today's Posts
  3. New Posts
  4. Mark Forums Read

to:
  1. New Posts
  2. Today's Posts
  3. Categories
  4. Mark Forums Read

I don't think I've *ever* used the Categories sub-menu -- mainly because it's incomplete, but also because it's just as fast to go to the forum index and pick a forum, instead of going to a category index and pick a forum, and using the forum index requires less thinking about which category the forum I want is in -- so it would make a good buffer between "things I click often and are safe to accidentally click" and "things I click rarely and will ruin my day if I click them accidentally".

Nice! I don't see myself cursing about that flub anytime soon.
