Symbol in title causing oddities


Well-known member
I'm noticing an odd issue if someone finds a way to insert a copyright, TM or registered symbol in a thread title.

If you mouse over, you get the attached image. Clicking on the thread, redirects you to the forum home.

Thoughts? Any way to prevent members from using those symbols?

Does anyone know why I might have this in my .htaccess. I'm originally migrating from a vBSEO site.

    RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^[A-Z]+\ /[^%?\ ]*\%
    RewriteRule ^. [R=301,L]
