@Mat: Though that is on making links to the profile, I'd rather it link to the comment that is being replied to. – Jeff Mercado Oct 2 '11 at 9:04

You're replying to usernames, not comments -- I don't see how the system could figure out what comment specifically someone is replying to. – a cat Oct 2 '11 at 9:10
