Here's what you do. You go to godaddy.com and check out if the domain name "ts.co" is available or something talkstats appropriate. If it is, you buy up that domain. Then all you need to do is create yourself a web crawling application that does nothing but scan talkstats.com for new threads, storing their post IDs to the associated links like talkstats.com/showthread.php/threadID-name-of-thread. Then as long as it updates frequently enough, you could always use ts.co/threadID to link back to the associated talkstats thread. Of course, you'll have to create a redirector on your newly bought website to do this, which should be very simple, especially if you use jQuery. I hear it is great. It does all things.
