Well, they aren't actually in a directory, that's just mod_rewrite at work.

The posts are actually stored in a database by Wordpress, normally accessable with the format www.whatever.com/?p=<postid>

mod_rewrite rules can change things to make it more human friendly, which is what UD does. But the old style still works.

For example, http://www.uncommondescent.com/?p=3000 is DaveScot asking how the bigfoot shaped rock on mars is explainable by evolution.
