Description

Facebook has some really nasty Javascript.

Twice today I've had an article at http://soylentnews.org/ in one tab, then Alt-C'ed to copy its URL to the clipboard, then pasted that URL into my Facebook status.

The text "application/x-vnd.Be_textarray" (or something like that) was appended to the URL.

To compound the problem, backspacing over the mimetype is of no use as Facebook caches the URL as originally pasted. Clicking on the preview shown at the bottom of my status gets a page that just says "Error".
