That's very odd - I've never come across that  - have you grown King Edwards before?

I don't think you can 'follow' a thread without posting on it, but you could just post a smiley and tick the Email me box at the bottom of the thread.  Then, if you've also ticked the right box in your Settings, you should get an email when someone else posts on that thread.  On that email you will be offered the option to Unsubscribe from following that thread.

Hope that helps
