Please stop linking to the page number.

An open request to pretty much everyone, but especially mods. The SDMB has a feature to choose how many posts per page, I have it set to 200 and am unsure why anyone would actually choose less. Regardless because people have different numbers of posts per page, linking to a particular post or linking to the thread with "relevant section starts at post#xx" is always a better practice than linking to a page number.

Yeah, that option has only been around for about 15 years. But I'm sure that people will notice any day now.
