What does the “link” thingy do?

I've noticed a link entitled, "link" under each answer (beside the "flag" link).

When I click on it, nothing happens.

What's the use of the "link" then?

Gives you the URL of the page with that answers anchor appended to it, so you can email a link directly to the answer you want to share it with... :-)

thank you, beggs. so the URL was saved in the buffer, what I need is just paste it? Let me see…. – user140127 Dec 10 '09 at 6:38
Clicking on link does not save it to the buffer... you have to right-click and copy link (or whatever your browser says) or just click and copy the link from the location bar after the page loads. – beggs Dec 10 '09 at 6:55
