Since today I got a weird issue. I usually sit on the Forum overview page to see what the current discussions are: https://www.gamespot.com/forums/

If there is something interessting, I use the mouse wheel to open the thread in a new tab.

This worked until today. Now if I open it in a new tab, I get an 404 error message:

If I instead normally click on the link, it works perfectly fine:

The problem lies in the URL:

New tab:

Looks like an encoding issue to me.
Any idea why this is? Is this my Chrome screwing up or is this someting on GameSpots end?
