alert message points to wrong location. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am activly following the SP3 VPN thread located at

    http://forums.microsoft.com/technet/showpost.aspx?postid=2600430&siteid=17

    but for some reason every alert message I get for the post has the link below in it -- which goes to the wrong place.

    http://forums.microsoft.com/forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3713835&SiteID=17

    I have tried deleting and reconnecting my alerts, but still I get this other site link.

    It is also annoying as heck to have to search though 3 different forum environments to keep track of things. Was that post in the regular, Technet, or MSDN area? As it is the TechNet forum doesn't even say that I'm subscribed to the message.  Moving a post within the forum structure should not have affected the Post ID, just where it is in the hierarchy/index list. 

    Is this BAD programming (Broken As Designed) or is it IBM (It's Better Manually)?

    I wonder if my alert for this thread will work (im)properly too.
