It is completely standard these days to expose a permalink for secondary content such as answers and comments, usually exposed as a link on the post date. Not having this available subverts proper cross linking of available content, thereby encouraging duplication of content.
Can this be simply switched on eventually?
This notable improvement has gone AWOL again for a few weeks at least, only just found this old question again and had to unaccept my answer accordingly:
@Monique vdB - sorry to ping you directly, but given this had seemingly been silently implemented at some point, and now silently been removed again, and it's an ancient question that is likely to be overlooked, do you happen to be aware of what's going regarding this fairly annoying regression?
