I posted this question.

And wanted to provide a link to a comment. I can find a solution to provide a link to a specific answer.

Apart from going to the user's profile and their activity, finding the comment and obtaining a link from there,

I there an easier way to a specific comment?

  • Don't feel bad. Meta is a strange place and sometimes things are hard to find. My voting to close isn't a comment on your unwillingness or inability to search. Jul 25, 2013 at 9:06
  • @CodyGray No I understand that, I just hate it when such an obvious duplicate is found., I will delete this comment after u see it, just not necessary if u know what I mean

Yes, click the 'Date' stamp against the comment and you'll get the anchor link for that comment that you can use.

For example - Reduce close vote expiration restrictions
