I do appreciate the presence of a Permalink option when viewing my feed, and it's a decent enough placement from a UI standpoint. However, its presence as a button tag causes issues with my User Experience. (And I'd like to think I'm not alone. Right?)
Usually I just middle-click to open something like that in a new tab for reading later, especially as I'm scrolling through a feed while clicking it. Or I might be looking just to link someone to journal, not really wanting to go to the page. Either way, as a button it forces me to move that tab away from the page I was reading, then remember to hit back instead of close to get to where I'd been.
