I'm told devs are looking into it. It was migrated from SO; I'm guessing something went wrong with that –  Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '11 at 5:03
    
The actual error is "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" –  Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '11 at 5:04
    
@MichaelMrozek It's a duplicate too, meh. –  Tim Stone Aug 3 '11 at 5:06
    
@Tim If only we could close it :). Maybe it's a defense mechanism –  Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '11 at 5:07
    
@MichaelMrozek I like to think of it as the system auto-closing the question for us, by making it inaccessible to everyone. –  Tim Stone Aug 3 '11 at 5:08
    
Also, searching for "Copy code stackoverflow" causes the 500 on the results page. The plot thickens... –  Soumya Aug 3 '11 at 5:08
    
@Michael: Is it possible for a question to have 1 view and 1 answer? I thought the first view of the question is by OP when they submit the question. In the first screenshot, it shows 1 view and 1 answer. There were no answers on SO. Just curious. –  user162697 Aug 3 '11 at 5:22
    
@Siva The view counting is pretty weird, and the question list is cached anyway, so it can show old data. Between those two anything can happen –  Michael Mrozek Aug 3 '11 at 5:28
