I was on StackOverflow and clicked on this ad, and got a 404:

None of the Adzerk redirects appear to be working.

  • What browser, and do you have javascript running? Part of the URL is missing, which is why it doesn't work. – David Fullerton Jan 14 '11 at 18:32
  • IE8 with Javascript enabled. I see the additional part of the Url that you're talking about, so I pasted in a new example, still no joy. Oddly enough, Firefox works. – Robert Harvey Jan 14 '11 at 18:39
  • IE8 appears to be truncating the URL when it attempts to redirect. – Robert Harvey Jan 14 '11 at 18:45
  • @David: See my edit and subsequent comments. – Robert Harvey Jan 14 '11 at 20:08

    it's because the "c#" isn't escaped in the list of keywords -- we'll get that fixed ASAP – David Fullerton Jan 14 '11 at 20:11

This should be fixed now. The ad code wasn't escaping the "#" in "c#" in the URL.
