Method to ID responses?

Question about pinning down who someone is responding to in any given thread.

If a responder, when writing, makes no reference to a specific post or poster, is there a back-door method to devine the answer?

With very short threads it typically is no problem, but especially in long threads it can be difficult.

Click on the subject link.

Hmmm…

Subject is not available as a hot link when viewing “whole thread” mode.

Then going to the responder one post at a time mode, clicking his subject link is hot, but clicking goes all the back to the OP. I’m pretty sure the devining I’m trying to sort out is not a response to the OP.

Not sure I’m following your directions correctly???

TIME OUT, I TAKE IT BACK!

I just tested your method on this short thread.

Clicked on my own stand alone message (responding to your post), clicked on hot subject link, got to your post.

Thanks!

(Conclusion: When testing on the message I was trying to ascertain, he WAS responding to the OP. I just thought he wasn’t.)

Thanks again.

I assume BrerBear response post 94196 is to Denny saying to click the <Subject: re “hot link”.>

When, in BrerBear’s post, I click the “re: …”, I go to Denny’s post. Not to the OP.

FWIW
