Mark private messages as read after they've been replied to

Title
Mark private messages as read after they've been replied to

Short, concise description of the idea
If someone replies to a private message they receive, that message should at that moment be marked as read.

Full description of the idea
Right now to mark a message as read, you have to click on its checkbox and press the "Read" button, even if you've actually replied to it. Logic dictates that to reply to a message you have to read it first, thus it's logical to mark replied-to messages as read.

An ordered list of benefits
  • More logical user experience
  • No additional step needed to mark message as read
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Developer time (probably not significant)
