I don't know whether this is network-wide or just on SO, but chat doesn't onebox meta.se comments when I've come to the post through the Meta newsletter and so ?newsletter=1&nlcode=x is in the URL

It should!

i.e.

english-spelling-differences?newsletter=1&nlcode=83%7ca920#comment775901_236552

vs

It took us a while in the Lounge to figure this one out, which therefore must be deemed to violate the principle of least surprise.

    POLS? Sorry, but can you spell that out? – Oded Jul 17 '14 at 11:52
  • Ah. Familiar with the principle, not the acronym. – Oded Jul 17 '14 at 13:43

    Also breaks for lots of other querystrings. The one for duplicate / related links is particularly annoying in this regard. – Shog9 Jul 18 '14 at 5:15

    @Shog9 the related link one should now be fixed; comments is trickier - looking – Marc Gravell Sep 1 '14 at 13:14

    This acts differently now. The onebox occurs, but it results in the question being oneboxed, not the linked comment! Only noticed it today; it could be new behaviour from, off the top of my head, the last week or so? – Lightness Races with Monica Oct 7 '14 at 23:43
