Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

My question I had problems submitting is here:

What are the valid characters in the domain part of e-mail address?

The submit button gave me an opaque error when I had this line in my question:

mailto:<uri-encoded local part>@<domain part>

It doesn't matter what sort of code tag I stuck it in, I still got an error.

Preferably I'd at least get some indication of what the error was, and ideally I could submit this and any escaping that needed to happen would happen on the server side.

The error I am getting looks like this:

This happens both on initial submit and on subsequent edits (as the screenshot shows).

Interestingly enough, it doesn't happen on meta, as I just submitted this bug report with no problems!

Looks like an overeager filter. It shouldn't block that when it's in a code block. – hammar Jun 8 '13 at 18:04
Heh, the response is actually an Internal Server Error, so this definitely seems like a bug ;). – Matt Jun 8 '13 at 18:43
Most likely something on your end. – Shadow Wizard Oct 22 '14 at 15:30
@ShadowWizard - or it might have been fixed in the one year interval ;) – Merlyn Morgan-Graham Oct 23 '14 at 1:53
