I figured with a code that dense, it probable contained a URL to a rubbish iPhone app, or perhaps a link stuffed full of tracking parameters.

Still, what the heck, I scanned it.

    Are comments signing in through facebook working? I just tried to comment by signing in and got redirected to the homepage with a load of PHP warnings from the jetpack module.
