Well, no: that link goes to a subthread that begins with the quoted message. But then you can click on the "Subject:" in the bottom pane and *that* will give you the full thread.

(Unless the message was cross-posted to multiple lists, in which case you may get a 404. *sigh*)

I wish LWN's links pointed to the full thread from the get-go.

Yeah, the selected message is still the quoted one, but the top pane shows the entire thread, which is what I would prefer the link in the LWN article to go to.

That seems to do the same thing as the "[thread]" link, but I've never seen a 404 issue with "[thread]".
