When browsing Get a Stack Overflow Careers profile page (must be logged out of Careers to see the page, otherwise you'll reach your own profile) with IE 11, you'll see this:

Not a pleasant sight. Can those bullets please be stopped from invading?

IE 11 vanilla, 100% zoom, no add ons, Windows 7.

    Someone must be trying to kill Stack Overflow (and has bad aim).

  • I see it as the result of 4 people's tee shots, where the 'o' is the pin.

This has been fixed. Thanks for letting us know about some stray bullets. ;)

Edit: What was causing it?

Since tox123 asked, I'll comment that the problem seemed to be that the sidebar column didn't have a position assigned to it. The li bullets in the sidebar list had a margin-left assigned to them, but in IE (for some reason) it was assigning these positions to the overall container of .content. IDK why. Adding position: relative; to the sidebar fixed it though.
