Mini bug in "Account Settings" page - quote escaping error

How to reproduce:
1/ Edit your personal page "Other Interests" to read: Let's climb
2/ Save
3/ Revisit the edit page - now it just contains: Let

This happened to my page a couple of times now before I realized what was happening. I went back to edit/correct a typo in my first sentence, not realizing that everything after the first apostrophe had been disappeared.

Edit: updated to clarify.

Looks like it's fixed on your profile. What did you have to do?

If you set the text to "let's climb" it saves just fine.

If you then go back to edit, the second half is dropped in the pre populated field.

To fix, you have to retype the text any time you make an edit.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
