    There is a case when permalinks to posts are changed, which defeats the purpose of a permanent link.

    To clarify, this is the link that I'm referring to

    Which you get by clicking here

    This link is always linking to page 4, but the post may not be always in that page.
    When older posts are deleted, this post #973508 may be now in page 3 or page 2. In such case, the above link is no longer points to the correct page.

    There's a trade off clearly, but we went with this approach to give a URL that will generally be more useful to someone reading it than the basic posts/123/ link (more context from the URL). There are comments/suggestions regarding changing it.

    You can change it pretty simply in the template if preferred.

    If there is 100 pages thread and 1 comment was deleted from page 49, so everything basically moved 1 comment, the entire thread is destroyed if hyperlinks were used to guide users to specific posts in this thread?
