|Digg: worst permalinks ever
||[Feb. 29th, 2008|01:00 am]
The winner of the worst permalinks ever goes to.... Digg!
Another Digg user, David Recordon, has sent you a shout. You can read it at the following URL:Seriously?
The Digg Team
Sorry if I'm just dumb and don't understand which part is the worst, but what would be the ideal one?
I see several things that can be bad or good:
- send-shout instead of received-shouts
- # instead of /
- /users/ instead of /
First one is, obviously the worst of all three, but is that it? I'm probably missing context / sarcasm not being a native speaker.
I'll really appreciate your help understanding if it's technical thing or language/culture thing that is not making it obvious for me.
It's not just you. I only noticed the first issue, too. I've no problem with the other two items.

Brad is referring to the fact that this URL is to "the current shouts" (that is, a resource that changes over time) rather than to the specific shout that the email notification is regarding. Therefore if you refer back to that email a year from now it will no longer be a link to the correct thing.
Yes, my bad - I missed the most important part ;) at least it's not English.
