Maybe, but not that soft. I obviously know it's a link to a thread on the site, but it won't open for me. It produces a site error message that normally means that the link is dead - the thread has been deleted. We removed a lot of threads from the archive some time ago, and 2003 was one of the years that would have been involved.
I still can't open your link despite many attempts.
Aha! The mystery is solved. It occurred to me that the problem might have something to do with my special screen - I have edit tools under each thread and post that you can't see. They show me everyone's email address,and enable me to delete/lock/ban and various other things.
I didn't have that screen in 2003,and I wondered if that prevented me from loading those old threads, so I just logged out and presto! Your link worked.
