Forum issues - calling attention
Couple of current issues about the forum that need to be addressed:
1. Reference to this message:
Issue: Attachments not available for users.
but are seen only by the OP in edit mode.
2. Number of views for a blog post - earlier this was displayed alongside the title, now it is gone.
Kindly restore this feature.
3. Easily getting a direct link to a particular message in a discussion; for example, the direct link as seen in  above.
Currently I use the option 'Email to friend' and have to wait for the email.
Kindly provide a direct way to do this so users can be directly pointed to messages faster.
