 I'm not sure I agree it is performing an action. Like other links, it
 simply takes you elsewhere (down-page) with no lasting effects.

 Buttons like "Subscribe" and "Favorite" (the other current sidebar
 buttons), or the "Submit" button for the reply/topic forms, all result in
 lasting effects.

 I'm inclined to agree with @samuelsidler that is should be a link. I'm not
 opposed to executive, designer, or majority override on that matter,
 should any be employed. As such, I'll wait a bit more to hear one way or
 another to avoid an unnecessary revert and reimplementation.
