I can't see the "reply" from apecwyndham. I expected it at the end of all the other replies.

Is the reply hidden somewhere? This forum doesn't have a tree structure like StackOverflow does it?

I searched the user apecwyndham but it can't be found. It may happen if the user has been deleted because violating the rules, for example spamming the forum.

I hadn't thought of that. It makes complete sense.

Thank you.

Note also that URLs like that will take you almost always to the more recent post in the thread. If there were lots of posts after the one you're told about in the mail you may have to scroll up to view it/them.
