What the hell? You fix the double redirects when

Fair enough :) Don't worry, I haven't been rampantly going around
"fixing" links to redirects. If there are bots that fix up in these
cases, so much the better.
As for the mover of a page being expected to do it...well...I recently
moved "cock (chicken)" to "rooster" and set out to fix the 10 or so
double redirects. But my god what a tedious, painful process. I got
through about 5 and said to hell with it. We really should do
completely away with all menial labour of this kind...
This is always the WP:AWB. It's a great tool for mundane things like this,
especially since you can do some, leave it, and then fire it up again to
finish the rest.
