FlyerTalk's Title Apostrophe Bug

I don't know if this has ever been reported as it's impossible to search for the ' (apostrophe), unless spelled out. It seems if there is an apostrophe in the thread title, "First Post" functionality does not work on that thread.

Again, sorry if this has been previously reported.

This one. Any of the threads in OMNI/PR containing the possessive - "Trump's" in the thread's title.

What's happening other than what you expect to happen?

Take the thread "Trump's Tweets" for instance. When there is a new post in a thread, I always see the "View First Unread" link at the top left of the page. That does not happen when there is an apostrophe in the thread title.

On threads that have new posts AND don't have an apostrophe in the thread title, the "View First Unread" link is always present.

I see the issue. I will report it. But I honestly don't think it is going to see any traction, it's such a low significance issue. But we can dream

, I totally understand. I might suggest they rename the thread "Tweets by Trump". Pure genius.
