Here's a serious bug with the new mobile theme that was rolled out.

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/mobile/on and http://meta.stackoverflow.com/mobile/off can be forced upon someone because they use GET rather than POST.

You've probably just learned the combination to my luggage! – user7116 Jul 18 '11 at 18:41

You have a funny definition for "serious". Wait - WHY IS ALL MY REP GONE?!! – Shog9 Jul 18 '11 at 18:45

This has been fixed.

More annoying than serious, but still a bug.

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/mobile/on doesn't work now. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jul 18 '11 at 19:21
@George - obviously. – Kevin Montrose Jul 18 '11 at 19:22
How does one use the mobile theme now? – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jul 18 '11 at 19:22
@George - the mobile link that's been on the bottom of every page for a day or two now. – Kevin Montrose Jul 18 '11 at 19:23
Great, thanks for fixing this! – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jul 18 '11 at 19:25

I don't think it's dangerous, those actions just alter your session.

edit: I had attempted to trigger rep recalc, but that requires a POST apparently. The OP mentioned actions work with a GET request.

Nope... not that I can tell. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jul 18 '11 at 18:46
No you didn't. Try harder! – Shog9 Jul 18 '11 at 18:46
Rep recalc had the same bug, but they fixed it pretty fast – Michael Mrozek Jul 18 '11 at 18:50
