Use question body preview to navigate to a question

Should clicking on the question body preview in the question list take you to the question page, in the same way as clicking on the question title does?

I personally would find this more convenient on both desktop and mobile.

Currently only the title is a link to the question

Question row with only the title highlighted

The preview of the body could also link to the question

Question row with both title and question body preview highlighted

Potential confusion

I would not want the whole of the question row to be a link to the question, because there are parts of it which are already links to other places, and other parts that could cause confusion if they were made into links to the question. However, I imagine that most people's expectation when clicking on the preview of the question body would be that the full wording of the question body would be displayed, which seems consistent with navigating to the question page.

Are there any reasons to expect this to cause confusion?

Doing this would preclude selecting text from the question preview. Is that a problem? (2 comments)
