I sent the link to this post to my friends on Facebook: https://gtx0.com/read/i-made-a-minecraft-mod-mr-blammy

However, I attempted to actually use that link and it sent me to this: https://gtx0.com/read/i-made-a-minecraft-mod-mr-blammy?fbclid=IwAR0GnqFunpPfWssnnbPnKMajJTCLciDvzl50vMNxQcrRFCKYsFNYADOGlTQ

...which is in Hell. The situation is resolved by removing the long referral tag from the end.

I'm not sure if this is a problem with GT (though I've shared GT links on Facebook before and it has worked), but I figured I'd let you know what was happening.

It's a click tracker that Facebook appends to outgoing links but there's something we can do on .htaccess here to remove it.

Accurate. Facebook is the devil.

Appreciate it, but GTX0 is using NGINX and a bunch of PHP routing, not Apache.

Anyway, easy fix. Fixed.
