Never mind about the permalink to forum post thing 3 comments up. I found the # under the Activity stream item. You’d think after using this thing so long I’d know where stuff is. (or maybe it was just added )
That said, in the /support view, ‘Latest’ (beside the link to the last poster’s profile) should be a link to the latest page/post. Clicking into the thread then having to click the last page in the pagination div is suboptimal. Also, there really ought to be a pagination div at the bottom of the page as well.
