"go to quoted post" link intermittent

In a quoted post, there's a little blue [>] for "go to quoted post". Intermittently, this does not work; the pointer still turns into the "clickable" finger but nothing happens. Recently, I noticed this seemed to occur on the first load of a thread page from the subforum's list or from the page nav within the thread, but is resolved by a reload of the page.

Sometimes it’s resolved by a reload, sometimes not.

I've never found that link unresponsive, but I have found that it sometimes just takes you to a random(?) page on the thread, and not to the specific quoted post.

I usually copy and paste the number of the quoted post into my current post. I often check the link, and on a few occasions the "little blue [>] for 'go to quoted post' goes to the incorrect quoted post.

When I re-copy and paste, the link works, so I assume I incompletely copied the post number originally.

FWIW. I previously quoted my rationale for (extensively) quoting, especially as a citation (reference):

A further challenge then becomes finding the post

I leave my quotes as links to identify the author, and if anyone is interested in reading further, or verifying those quotes, they can easily be followed right from the post[and tells the reader that his topic has been previously considered in the past].

I use ellipses,"..." to eliminate as much as possible, and still leave the context of the quote comprehensible; and I bold key words and phrases to emphasize the core content of the discussion.

The quote chain allows me to quote a few subscribers on one topic in one post. As my signature line reads: "I use nested, sequential quotes (to be read in that order) to improvise an imaginary conversation.

Anything outside a quote box is my contribution to the current 'conversation. "
My signature line has since been changed, to liken my nested quotes to a "panel discussion on a topic, with me as moderator and a participant, each of us speaking in turn."
That’s why I take care to validate my links.

We've been trying to find a solution to this for a couple weeks, now. One problem is that it's very intermittent and is inconsistent for users (you and I can use the same link and it'll be broken for you, but work for me).

IBJoel please add a new jira ticket for this, and reference the FT jira in it (and the BKF jira in the FT jira).

Thankfully, I don't think I have 8 (direct) bosses and no one asks me to come in on the weekend. Just general office life is funny.
