Becasue who viewed a message is not in the database.  Only a viewed counter. 

Great suggestion tho, I'll turn it in to the software people.

You wouldn't be able to have who viewed sometimes as there would be people viewing a tread via say Google search so, not a member just a viewer /reader.
Also what a list if the thread or message is viewed over 1000 times.
Where as kudoes have a difference, they are given by signed in /up members even if just a newbie, not from the outside like viewing would be.

If there was such a feature it would only be able to show view by logged in users and it would have to end in saying " and XXX anonymous internet users."

Based on my experience in other places, but specifically Compuserve under their current web system, this would really only be of value if one could address a message to a specific user which would set an Unread flag that would be removed when read by that specific user.

Even if it only listed logged in users, I can't see any advantage in knowing who has read a message especially when so few seem to use the Threaded View option where one is linked to the specific message being replied to.
