I had some free time so I created a very simple chrome extension which work on the client side :)

First you add the "shortcodes" you want the the options panel

enter image description here

you get something that looks like this: enter image description here

where you can add remove as many as you want.

then when you enter a comment you will see this new link enter image description here

and When you click it you will get this: enter image description here

It works both on meta and main site of WordPress answers, an di know there are many bugs but it gets the job done :)
