What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

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
