Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The first result of the MSO search results for user:131713 closed is "Reject user-entered titles that end with the string '[closed]'" (question ID 70729). When I try to view that question, I get the error message

The page isn't redirecting properly

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

I suspect that the presence of "[closed]" in the title has something to do with this error. In fact, the reason I was looking for that question in the first place had to do with me being unable to edit this question's title to contain "[closed]."

Yeah, it keeps redirecting to itself. If you manually fix the slug, you can view it though. – a cat Nov 14 '11 at 15:45

I edited this question so it doesn't experience the redirect loop (that shouldn't be able to happen in the future, because of the new "[closed]" restriction).

Repro'd in chrome. The request returns a 301 redirect to the same URL.
