Here's a serious bug with the new mobile theme that was rolled out.

http://meta.stackoverflow.com/mobile/on and http://meta.stackoverflow.com/mobile/off can be forced upon someone because they use GET rather than POST.

This has been fixed.

More annoying than serious, but still a bug.

I don't think it's dangerous, those actions just alter your session.

edit: I had attempted to trigger rep recalc, but that requires a POST apparently. The OP mentioned actions work with a GET request.
