    I believe this has been reported and marked as designed, I'll see if I can find it.

    If this is as designed, then bye bye to my board. This can be a huge deal since it can be abused so easily.

    Hm, I can't seem to find the original report, however, I do vaguely remember this being reported.

    I made some related test posts over here some time ago.

    I think I've found whatever you were looking for:
    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/xenforo-vulnerability.46769/

    If it's that, then it's a different problem since it affects the entire system and not just the URL.

    Why don't you enforce strict moderation in this case? If people abused it, (temp) ban them. It's what I would do.

    It's not really a "problem". As Mike said in that thread, it's when you have Unicode combining diacritics.

    Hint: Try "Romanize Titles in URLs" (options->basic board information) that is new in 1.2 if you are concerned about the URLs.

    As already posted and as Mike said on the previous report, this is not a bug.
