Way back in 2015, a feed bot posted a link to a meta question in a chat room. The link was, in those pre-HTTPS days, http://meta.christianity.stackexchange.com/. However, if you click on it, you are not brought to http://meta.christianity.stackexchange.com/ (which would redirect); nor are you brought to https://christianity.meta.stackexchange.com/ (which is the new location). Instead, you are brought to https://meta.christianity.stackexchange.com/, which throws invalid certificate errors.

Obviously the link was correct at the time of posting, and has been rewritten incorrectly since.

  • Hmm. It links to Why was the question about reconciling wrongs closed? for me - which loads without problems in Firefox. – DavidPostill Jun 10 '17 at 22:50
  • Seems to fail in chrome as he described (I only have canary installed), and vivaldi, so I guess it might be browser specific. What versions of the browsers in question are in use might be handy here – Journeyman Geek Jun 11 '17 at 12:35
  • Well, the link is the link. @JourneymanGeek. The only browser-specific thing is how they respond to certificate errors. It should fail on all browsers: if it works for you, your browser is insecure. – TRiG Sep 14 '17 at 13:17
