Browsing this question, I notice that Gilles says he can't see deleted questions. That gets me curious as to exactly what his rep is on SO so I click on his name and I get the error page. I can't view my own profile either though random others seem to still work.

What did me and Gilles do that made MSO not like us anymore?

Can I at least know why me and Gilles are so special? – John Aug 11 '11 at 14:18
    
Someone checked in some code that operated on the "About Me" string, but didn't do a null check. OH, THOSE PESKY NULLS! – Jarrod Dixon Aug 11 '11 at 23:20
    
Wait, are you trying to make this my fault for not filling my "About me"? :P – John Aug 12 '11 at 1:36
    
It was more Gilles' fault - come on, everyone should fill out their profile; you even get a badge for it! – Jarrod Dixon Aug 12 '11 at 5:19

I just got a message that we're in maintenance mode.
