@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
@JeffMercado Maybe you'd rather do that, but the OP didn't specify where it should link, so it's a dupe to me. Also, how could that possibly work? You're replying to usernames, not comments -- I don't see how the system could figure out what comment specifically someone is replying to. – lunboks Oct 2 '11 at 9:10
