Very Cool - Clicking on Replies instead of the Topic Title

Finally catching up on my reading. In the Site Talk topic "Best things about Chowhound 2.0 " carswell wrote
- In the topic listings, how when you click on the word "replies" next to a topic, it skips the original post and takes you to the first reply.
Well, hot dog !!! Especially when the OP is long worded and I won't mention names like rworange.
Actually I always click on replies now. Many origianal posts are brief so most of the OP is displayed anyway. Here's one of my long posts and you can get the idea
As you can see from the url it directs you to the comments or replies section.
Sure, it's not the first most recent reply, but it's something.
Actually I was going to figure out how to track all your posts,another good "new" thing. I read everything I see with your name on it, because I always learn something new!
Keep up the good work.
Since this board is semi-threaded, not flat, jumping to the most recent reply doesn't help much, because one recent reply may be way up at the top of the page while the others may be way down at the bottom. Although one nice workaround would be to have a feature that allows you to keep jumping to the new replies on a page.
