      Description

      This is a little thing that has been annoying me a bit for ages. I am subscribed to several forums and discussions. Often, when reading the post in my email client, I do not necessarily want to reply (there is a nice link to do that at the bottom of the email) but I want to look at the post in the browsers - e.g. to rate it or check the author's profile or so.

      Thing is, there is no easy way to jump from the email directly to the post. There is a link at the top of the email but that leads to the discussion page. I would prefer if the link had the relevant #p12345 anchor in the URL.
