    I'd say that is by design. You are linking to a user detail page, not the main user info page. – Martijn Pieters Jul 10 '14 at 18:17
  • @MartijnPieters I wasn't expecting it to link to the details page, I was expecting it to onebox and link to the main profile. dunno, maybe that's unreasonable. – strugee Jul 10 '14 at 18:28
  • But if I wanted to link directly to someones questions or answers or reputation tab, or any of the other detail views, I would not want it one-boxed and linked to the main profile, no. – Martijn Pieters Jul 10 '14 at 21:09
  • @MartijnPieters true. like I said, I don't know if this is a reasonable request or not. we'll see what SE thinks, I guess – strugee Jul 10 '14 at 22:05
