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

This SE-promoting ad, that managed to cause some problems in the past. (Now redesigned a bit).

Sometimes it displays a question title from math.stackexchange that includes a mathjax expression. In this case, the expression is shown as mere text. Confused me a bit when I saw it first time.

Would be better to either render the actual equation for that ad (would be much more appealing, wouldn't it?) or ban questions with mathjax in their titles from appearing.
