Hello?
I have a question about 301 redirect mod_rewrite if you will.

Can you tell me what in the world are backslashes doing here? ( \ )
It makes it very uneasy for eyes to look at and only complicates stuff.

@Boris_yo In regular expressions, all characters except for numbers and letters should be escaped with a backslash. Some have special meaning and the others are reserved for potentially having special meaning in the future. For example the period has special meaning: "any character". So /foo.bar/ matches both "foo.bar" and "foodbar" but /foo\.bar/ only matches "foo.bar".
