Link Encoding Failure

Anyone else noticed the scripting error when you load up the "Basecamp - anyone used it?" topic ?

Looks like the script is trying to disguise the redirector, but it doesn't work well with the quotes in the post and fails with a missing semi-colon error.

If you elect to debug, or just look at the source, it is pretty easy to see where it went wrong.

[Joel, feel free to delete this post, just wanted you to know about the error, that's all.]

joel already admin that he is not a developer yet, so what do you expect?

I don't expect too much, but for someone who goes on and on about hiring the best, I must admit I'm disappointed by these problems.

It hasn't been fixed yet and I wonder if it'd be possible to exploit this bug and inject some "interesting" additional content into Joel's site.

Not that anyone would be so immature, obviously....
