Direct Link to a Comment

There should be a way to permalink comments, too. I found a comment that answered my question better than the answer (because it was specific to my problem, not that it was a real answer) and I wanted to link to it, but I can't. Sometimes, comments are great and they should be able to be permalinked. Shouldn't be too hard. [URL]#id.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
It's all well and good that this was closed as a duplicate, but why did I lose points? I looked for duplicates. The other one was labeled funny. He called it "Direct Link to a Comment." Instead of "Permalink Comments." Most people on this site know what a permalink is and StackOverflow didn't suggest it as a similar article. I read through that list for a while and didn't see it. Yet I lose reputation? –  vbullinger Nov 22 '11 at 18:17

Questions and answers are entities of their own, but comments are comments to either a question or an answer - linking to a comment without context does't sound right to me.


Update:

Comments can now be permalinked - the link is the timestamp on the comment.

I can't accept this answer as THE answer, but I'd love to upvote you for the salient point you make. Alas, I don't have the required 15 rep. So at least know that your comment wasn't made in vain, my dear Oded, and that I appreciate your response. It may take a long time for me to get enough rep to upvote you, friend, for I am not popular on Meta as I question the system and the moderators around here sure do get butthurt easily. I'm sure I'll be reprimanded/have my comment edited/deleted. –  vbullinger Mar 5 '12 at 20:23

Came back to this question now that I have enough reputation to upvote you, @Oded :D And, yeah, I wonder if my suggestion was taken... –  vbullinger Aug 3 '12 at 20:28
