I too don't know of any webmail system that does this (including 
gMail).  It's not exactly the brightest idea other.  While you may be 
wanting to delete multiple pages from your junk folder, but what about 
that 1 message that's in there that you don't want to delete?  By 
requiring users to at least see each message, it's better and safer.  
Then you can't blame missing messages on RC :)
