Links to individual posts will still show the full thing. And it's not as if DW's interface is hard to understand.

Also, could you give them a tag not used for other things, then we can link to the whole set (and I think people with paid DW accounts can filter that set off their default view)?

Having just finally finished the process of putting all my votes in, I wanted to leave a note saying a huge thank you to you for doing all the hard work of chasing up and posting these responses. It has helped me enormously in deciding how to vote, especially for FCC. You got some very revealing answers! Excellent work.
