I am getting an error message when I click on the question Copy code from Stackoverflow posts on meta. I am able to navigate to other questions on meta without any issues.

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

A bug was introduced in the anonymous gravatar render - it's been fixed.
