comment When is endless paging appropriate?
@Guillermo It goes to the appropriate location I believe. Looking at the length of the ID I'm guessing that it's a per-session thing rather than a permalink. But I don't see there being a fundamental technical issue in implementing a permalink instead.

@Kristian - Sorry. I don't understand your comment. What Forrst gives you is exactly the normal back button behaviour - on-top of the infinite scroll behaviour.

comment What's a catchy name for “overly complex, barely designed interface”?
I'm with Charles. Poor design is poor design... and I've seen an awful lot of bad design by people who call themselves "designers" - and some rather good design by folk who call themselves "engineers". I find broad characterisations of one group by another harmful.
