Out of curiosity, I clicked See Sample Newsletter on the main site. At the bottom of the page that appears there are several links like this:

Newsletter subscription links

Some of these links go to Youtube videos instead of the subscription pages that you might expect.

Is this a bug or is my browser playing tricks? My browsers, I should say, as I have got the same result on both Internet Explorer and Firefox, and I have cleared the cache etc.

(I get the same results doing the same thing from the TeX.SE site, so it's not just Mathematics.)

The newsletter page in question may be seen here.

  • $\begingroup$ I got the same result (Firefox). One youtube video shows the "epic sax guy." $\endgroup$ – Joel Reyes Noche Jun 21 '14 at 13:15
  • $\begingroup$ Can you also provide a link to the page? $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jun 21 '14 at 13:58
  • $\begingroup$ @AsafKaragila, I have added a link. $\endgroup$ – Peter Phipps Jun 21 '14 at 14:11

This seems to be by design.

See Jeff Atwood's answer there. Essentially, the actual unsubscribe links can't be displayed in the example page. So they chose to put these youtube links.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. I must remember to search Meta as well as MathsMeta before asking a question. $\endgroup$ – Peter Phipps Jun 21 '14 at 14:38
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, something like that was bound to appear on meta.SE sooner or later. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jun 21 '14 at 15:03
