Tag pages (route /questions/tagged/tagname) redirect to themselves indefinitely:

$ curl -D - http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/featured
HTTP/1.1 302 Found
Cache-Control: private
Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Location: /questions/tagged/featured
X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN
Date: Fri, 05 Jul 2013 16:47:42 GMT
Content-Length: 143

<html><head><title>Object moved</title></head><body>
<h2>Object moved to <a href="/questions/tagged/featured">here</a>.</h2>
</body></html>

This only happens on Meta, so far, but only applies to any meta-tag that doesn't have a dash in it; those with a dash seem to be exempt, as do invalid tags:

  • Wait, this is why I got a "Too many requests from this IP" block earlier today when I tried to look at a meta tag page? Well, that makes sense now. – Billy Mailman Jul 5 '13 at 17:40
  • Seems like tag pages with a hyphenated tag don't self-redirect !? – Arne Stenström Jul 5 '13 at 18:11
  • @ArneStenström: Good catch! Updated. – Martijn Pieters Jul 5 '13 at 18:24
  • Invalid tags don't redirect either: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/adsfdsaf – Mansfield Jul 5 '13 at 18:52

    I guess that means it is fixed; perhaps a dev will post and add a status- tag. – Martijn Pieters Jul 5 '13 at 19:28
