My email showed up as: thetotalworm%40gmail.com (%40 replacing the @).

I figured it was some buggy feature against email harvesting, and changed it to: thetotalworm [at] gmail [dot] com

The following garbage showed up: thetotalworm+%5Bat%5D+gmail+%5Bdot%5D+com


There's an issue with URL encoding apparently.

This issue seems to show up on occasions. It also used to affect text in normal plaintext fields that didn't turn things into URLs.

On the plus side, most email clients will interpret the mailto link correctly even with the %40 in there.

Or, I'd assume most email clients would. Thunderbird does for sure.
