I was going to say something about CloudRadium earlier, but got in a fight with my keyboard :(
Not long ago I met an apparent human from that 188.8.131.52/18 range. I got the impression it's a proxy. Cell phone, hot on the heels of 112.79.43.abc (same UA requesting same page) which claims to be India.
due to the inability to link to individual submissions

Each post does have a #anchor so there's no inherent reason posts can't be linked; it just requires a code tweak.
For comparison purposes: Earlier this year someone explained to me how a php/bb URL works. Links to a specific post end in a seemingly redundant
but there's a reason for the redundancy. The query part means "the page that contains post 123456" (php/bb forums also have a thread number, but it isn't used in this type of URL), while the fragment means the post, wherever on the page it may be.
Meanwhile at WebmasterWorld, the post directly above mine is
This can only be used for linking if you have the same posts-per-page setting that I do. You can change the "-30" part of the URL or even omit it entirely; it won't override your own prefs. I experimented. If your setting is for a higher number, the URL will take you to your
page 8, which may not be the same as mine. Or to the last page of the thread, if there aren't 8 pages. So post #4634071 may or may not be present on this page. But it does have an <a name>. (Only a name. No id yet.)
