Lack of interest Don't Use /posts/ in Last Poster Info

In the last poster info on thread_list, the /posts/postid URL format is still used, whereas everywhere else uses the /threads/thread-title.threadid#post-postid.

Wouldn't it be better to use the threads format for the last poster info too? I remember when XF first opened, timestamps in thread posts used to use /posts/ and were changed to the current (# based) so that SEs didn't count duplicate content.

EDIT: Oh, I just realised that the /posts/ structure is also used on forum_list for the thread titles in the latest thread info too.

This only works on page 1. We don't store that much info about the last post to know exactly how to generate the link.

The /posts/ thing isn't really duplicate content - it 301s to the correct URL. Generally speaking, the SE would've seen the content already.
