I have to ask - Why would anyone want, or be able, to reply without first reading the thread?
If the thread title is a question then chances are you can answer the question without having to read the thread.

Now you see an update on the news story and you decide to post it in the thread. This link is a shortcut to replying to a thread. There are other instances where this shortcut is convenient. Another example is if you have borboles awesome last 5 posts sidebar modification and configured your sidebar to show up in your subforum either through xfrocks widget framework or jaxels xenporta then you can reply to the thread after seeing their reply in the sidebar. I have this very example set up on my own site if you want to give it a look.
