How to Use "Your Topic is similar to..."?

So, I can’t help but notice how the SDMB will auto-search for posts similar to my question. However, when I scroll over these to see the full thread, the mouse becomes “a hand pointing” which often indicates i scrolled over a clickable link. Yet, it seems nothing is actually clickable. If I am correct about this “scroll-over behavior”, isn’t this a major flaw? Shouldn’t the SD programmers make these clickable links so one can put these suggested topics to good use? If not…then what is the point to show a snippet one cannot expand?

It’d be great if the SD Programmers can explain their position on this and how I can use this advantageously?
