The link was somehow parsed as a question link, resulting in this URL in the report (MS):

I’m not sure if ChatExchange uses the /message/<message_id> endpoint, but it is known to insert some invisible characters in between long URLs. In the one which I reported:


The &zwnj;&#8203; character has appeared exactly after the / which might have lead to an incorrect parsing of the URL.

This was one reason why I had troubling parsing the URL in one of my bots earlier.

FWIW, this occurred again … here I’m sure that the invisible character stuff is the reason to blame.
