I was filtering questions so that I can see C++ and C# questions, I thought it's better to filter [C++] [or] [C#].

First time I typed http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%2b%2b% c%23 for C++ and C# enter image description here

Second time I typed http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%2b%2b+or+c%23 for C++ or C#

enter image description here

Why [C]? when I add or to the filter it confuses C++ with C

Am I missing something? Or should this be reported? If someone has any information please help me I'm dazed

Belongs on Meta ? – Soner Gönül Dec 25 '12 at 10:49
Just so you know [c++] [or] [c#] in the search bar works as expected. – chris Dec 25 '12 at 10:54

You're mixing + encodings here, the proper URL for the style you have would be:


The alternative, if in doubt, is to have any xxxx+ tag at the end (which gets special love to handle all the cases we reasonably can), like this:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/c%23 or c++
(note the hash still needs encoding, there's no way around that one)
