“permalink to this query” on data.stackexchange.com seems to be broken.

Queries in the Data Explorer are followed by a slug that replaces spaces with dashes. For example, http://data.stackexchange.com/meta/s/208/keystrokes-per-rep-point. However, when you try and switch sites, the URL replaces all of those minus signs with plus signs, a la http://data.stackexchange.com/gaming/s/208/Keystrokes+per+rep+point. This causes an error when you try to change site for the same query, since apparently it doesn't like positive attitude.

Something is wack with the whole system. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/94697/… –  Jon Seigel Jun 14 '11 at 17:19
@Jon Aye, should probably expand that report to be "All links on Data Explorer". Voted. –  Grace Note Jun 14 '11 at 17:20

@Jon Aye. There'll be a blog post about it by end of week, I imagine. –  Grace Note Aug 3 '11 at 17:37

I gave the server a talking to. I had to stomp my foot a few times, but it will now handle positive attitudes.

(I also fixed the encoding issue that was changing the polarity in the first place.)
