moderated Re: renaming a link should leave a pointer from the old name #suggestion

At the end of the day, as long as groups.io sends the actual URL to a file, it is going to be a problem.  Even if it sends out new links whenever a file gets renamed or moved, many of your group's members still have the original messages in their email, with stale links.  IMO, they are more likely to try to follow the links they originally received (in the messages that talked about them), than to look for a follow-up message with an updated link.

So, to fix this, groups.io would need to abandon using actual URLs, and use only those long, ugly links with incredibly long character strings (such as https://groups.io/g/MyGroup/files/grfhiauo4f8ewf9q9hf2301ru94itk5omgqwie0goih5ipo[hw[5-jagnoi3oht4gh4g8w0pgh5403qghriaqqp094gj94a3jg94a[34jg9a4gj9a4w), that tell groups.io what is the file you want, and let groups.io translate it for you.
