Retrieve a community forum reply programmatically 

To retrieve complete information about a reply to a topic in a community forum, use the edit link found in the forum reply entry in the forum replies feed.

You can use this operation to obtain forum reply information that you want to preserve prior to performing an update. See Update community forum replies for more information. This method returns the Atom entry of a single reply entry as opposed to a feed of all the reply entries. If you want to retrieve a feed, see Search communities.
