Titles beginning with double-quotes are missing their first and last characters in Stack Exchange global profiles
Hot Questions clips quotes wrongly in questions like '“this” and “that”'
In the “hot questions” listing, the title for "I am on it" vs. "I am at it" appears as:
I am on it" vs. "I am at it
I.e., without the initial or final double-quote characters. It seems related to this meta question which has reportedly been fixed. The effect is present on any SE site.
