Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think directly linking to an answer, where the question of that answer has multiple pages of answers doesn't work - or at least doesn't work well.

For example, this link

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/406760/whats-your-most-controversial-programming-opinion/1657050#1657050

It doesn't get me to the right answer.

If it matters, I'm on Firefox 3.5.3

Works as long as the clicking user hasn't changed the default sort order of answers. By design, then.

And what is the default sort order of answers, by votes? – flybywire Nov 3 '09 at 12:11

Test:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/406760/whats-your-most-controversial-programming-opinion/667637#667637

That test works for me. Funny. Maybe the answer you link to was deleted?
