Reply/Login Question

When you attempt to reply to a post, and are not logged-in, it makes you log in first; But why does it not take you back to the thread you were trying to reply to once you've logged in?

This is very annoying and I can't recall a single other forum where it is programmed like this. There's no reason to log in unless you are going to reply or start a discussion, so I always have to go find the thread again when I try to reply and have to log in. It would be much simpler if it returns you to the discussion thread you were in once you log in.

I understand this forum has been around for a long time, but that is something I thought would have been changed long, long ago. Am I missing something and there is a reason for this?

Thanks!

1. I stay logged in but on occasion

I get signed out, for some reason. After I sign back in I just click back to the page I was on and then refresh my browser.
