Browsing this question, I notice that Gilles says he can't see deleted questions. That gets me curious as to exactly what his rep is on SO so I click on his name and I get the error page. I can't view my own profile either though random others seem to still work.

What did me and Gilles do that made MSO not like us anymore?

Nothing to see here, move along :)

  • Can I at least know why me and Gilles are so special?

  • Someone checked in some code that operated on the "About Me" string, but didn't do a null check. OH, THOSE PESKY NULLS! Commented Aug 11, 2011 at 23:20
  • Wait, are you trying to make this my fault for not filling my "About me"? :P

  • It was more Gilles' fault - come on, everyone should fill out their profile; you even get a badge for it! Commented Aug 12, 2011 at 5:19
