Finding a thread's URL is now easier

I don't know how many of you have noticed, but a thread's canonical URL takes this form:

But the forum software often changes this form and links directly to one of the posts within a thread, like this:

There are times when you need to know the "real" URL to a thread, and I probably need this even more than the rest of you, for moderation purposes. In any case, I have added a "Link to this thread" box at the bottom of every thread. This box simply gives you the "correct" or canonical URL to link to that thread.

I hope this helps a few of you, and for the rest, well, you can just ignore it.

If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
