It appears perhaps the webmasterworld automatic link redirection scheme prevents linking to specific posts.

Example:
123-com/google/4367011.htm#msg4436278

I tried posting a link to a specific message and the redirect only goes to the top of the thread, although it looks like the redirect is passed the message number.

I did search around but only found older posts on this topic.
Perhaps there is a work around. It would be very useful to again link to specific posts.

Wow and the three letters "ExExEx" becomes #*$!

Yup, this is an issue. Thank you for reporting it.

FYI, there is a "report problem" link at the bottom of the page. For future reference, it is best to report issues there as it helps us track the bugs.

Thanks

I'll use the report problem link in the future.
