Comments With "Linked" Hidden Comments Are Still Visible

(Please excuse the poor title)
Not sure if this is a bug or intended, but if the deleted/hidden comment linked to a comment, the linked comment will still have a “link” to it even if it’s deleted/hidden like this:

@TheMountainThatRoars saw that comment.

Does the link go anywhere?

It goes to where the post was originally before deletion.

But can you see the deleted comment? :open_mouth:

Nope, can’t see it.

I think what @Shunty said is right, it takes you to the post before deletion.

No :smiley:

Here’s a link the comment in the picture if anybody wanted to test what happens:

There are no deleted posts there.

In “Do You Feel Guilty Killing Daisy?” yes, there’s no hidden/deleted comment, but in “General Rant Topic” there is as you can see there’s post #868 and #870 but no #869 (my hidden/deleted comment).

Oh yep. It’s to make sure links aren’t broken by deleted posts.

Not a bug.

Okay, that’s it. Lock!
