Linking to Google groups threads seems to be difficult in the Gentoo Forums.

Code:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc
cuts off the link at the ! character.

Code:
[url]https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc[/url]

[url]https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc[/url]
doesn't recognize it as valid URL

Code:
[url=https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc]https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc[/url]

[url=https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc]https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc[/url]
dito

Code:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#%21topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc

https://groups.google.com/forum/#%21topic/linux.kernel/Btf81GShwFc
That seems to work, but replacing ! with %21 is not exactly elegant.

Are there other ways to link to Google groups threads?

Why use that Google Message Hash™ to refer to a post?

Google Groups supports Message-ID, go to a group and click the down arrow in the search bar.

If you want a clickable link with the Message-ID, gmane supports that. Use mid.gmane.org to link to a specific post (eg http://mid.gmane.org/20120909213228.GA5538@elf.ucw.cz) and thread.gmane.org to link to a thread (eg http://thread.gmane.org/20120909213228.GA5538@elf.ucw.cz).
