I was browsing through general chat and saw something a bit peculiar...

Did anybody else see this? I'm not talking about the special characters, I'm talking about the page numbers.

^What about the fact the pages are numbered 3,2,1?:D

Haha, Cock Joke mentioned that in the thread. Davo says it's because he's a genius. I can't argue with that.

Hm yeah that's weird. It doesn't show it like that to me.

I know there's some kind of thing that if you enter it in a textbox or something it reverses the text you enter. Maybe that happened?

Free?

Are theses characters some kind of Arabic characters? If I am not wrong, this kind of characters are written backwards... Like, not from left-to-right, but right-to-left.

Yeah I do, but in my settings his thread is still pageless.

It's a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something.

I wonder what else we can achieve by posting that character in certain input areas of the BBS...or even the internet in general..

It's a different character, you can't exactly see it.

There are charaters that are meant for languages where they type from right to left, and when the browser notices that it tend to apply to that.

So sure, it's giltch and proof of bad code if it makes stuff fuck up.

That actually makes sense, since Arabic is one of those languages typed "backwards" as we would reckon it.
