I know, I’m not the owner of this page and it’s probably a bit stupid to post it, but I think that’s a bug in wordpress we should be able to reproduce (I’ll try and to that tomorrow).
To the point:
A friend of mine posted this link http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/08/20/why-anti-abortion-≠-pro-life/ and it came out scrabled like this (which is what you get when you copy the url field): http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/08/20/why-anti-abortion-%E2%89%A0-pro-life/ or http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/08/20/why-anti-abortion-%C3%A2%20-pro-life/ (which yields a 404)
I know this is usual url encoding but I was pretty sure wordpress was escaping characters like that to minuses ( – ). What went wrong there?
Have a nice night,
