Pasting a link with a hashtag using the hyperlink button replaces the hashtag with its url encoding

Say I want to post the link: Jeff Atwood - Wikipedia

If I create a text link using the hyperlink button, and paste in the above link, it becomes:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Atwood%23External_links

The # was replaced with %23. Unfortunately, some webpages can’t handle that switch as well as Wikipedia, so links break.
