And while we're on the topic of favorite bugs, did anybody else notice the double favorite that this comment got from frogan?

If you go to the post and check the people who saved it as a favorite, your name is in the list... Are you sure you weren't looking at posts that you saved as favorites rather than posts "by" you?

amyms, you can see for yourself, it's a genuine bug.

With that sort of regular abuse of the favouriting functionality, I think it's high time the favourites fought back! Viva la resistance!

I kid. I always feel giddy when someone favourite my posts. ;-)

This comment shows up in the list of Comments from null terminated saved as favorites. (I favorited the link, I didn't write it).

I had the same problem as null terminated with the test comment Matt made when AJAX unfavouriting was implemented. Unfavouriting and refavouriting fixed it though, so I assume it was buggy data from a bug that had already been fixed.
