annoying links

Oleg Bartunov-3
It's quite annoying to click on the links like
https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/flat/9f88b5e0-6da2-5227-20d0-0d7012beaa1c(at)lab(dot)ntt(dot)co(dot)jp/
and found "NOT FOUND" page.

It happens on page
https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/E1gmyrS-0002as-QA@...

Hmm. That is indeed quite annoying.

Do you know offhand if this is something that happend recently (in relation to a change we made somewhere), or if it has been that way "all the time"? I can't find anything obvious that changed it, but maybe something came along with a django upgrade or something like that. Or if it's been around since forever, that'd be good to know in the process of figuring out how to fix it :)

A lot of the archives' links have been like that for a long time.
Some don't get the let's-obscure-this-email-address treatment,
but I have no idea what the difference is.

That's interesting. Do you have an example of one that doesn't get broken?

Ones where @ has been converted to %40 seem to work fine,
as for example in

https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/20190331224233.GC891537%40rfd.leadboat.com

but I've also seen it work when that wasn't done, as for example
the second message-id link in

https://www.postgresql.org/message-id/271bc1a7-2b59-e3f3-56b7-c8bc5456424a%402ndquadrant.com

So no, I don't know why some of the ones where the final component
does look like it could be an email address get the obscuring
treatment.
