Confusing/redundant "reply" layout. Anyone else think so?

Discourse did, for some reason. They seem to think it’s “obvious” that if you’re replying to a person in a thread (even if it’s in response to a post way up in the thread) and that person was also the last poster, then obviously you were responding to the most recent post. Obviously.

Some of us initially reported it as a bug in the forums… but it was pointed out to be a “feature”.

It sucks, I think, but it’s true…
