Bug or feature?

Annoyance of the day:

When I was coming here, I went up to the address line of my web browser and proceeded to type in “http://www.wordpress.com%5D” (accidentally hitting the right bracket key as I reached for the ‘enter’ key).

Rather than simply leaving that address in the address line and giving me a DNS error, the way nice browsers used to work, I was forwarded to a site called “Open DNS Guide”, whose address appeared in the address line, thereby preventing me from going up there and hitting the backspace key once to correct my typo. Instead, I had to retype the whole damn line.

Was that helpful? I don’t think so!!!
