Very silly bug on Microsoft forums

I'm sure there is a Microsoft exam on how to handle custom errors in ASP.NET, and even how to verify query strings before processing them.  It might be in their forums, http://forums.microsoft.com, but not at this URL, http://forums.microsoft.com/communities/showpost.aspx?postid=fasdjkh&siteid=gh

Yep, we have a Server Error in '/Communities' Application in full display with instructions on how to turn on custom error handling.

Obviously no web application I've every written would do something that grossly stupid as not check for bad query string data, and they all have custom error pages switched on ........ hold on, just got to pop off and inspect my SubVersion repository.

(credit to Matt Barrett for finding this first in a Google search result, rather than a hand typed designed to fail URL)
