Hi - is there any way to strip out all HTML from the user profile fields? If a user updates their profile I would prefer it to strip out all HTML which is currently does not seem to be doing, I can even enter HTML tags on "real name" field, which render on the user profile page post update. (Example that renders)

That's a good catch. This would be a nice feature. It can be added as a enable/disable option in conf file. So that if admin wants to disable it he can, and switch back if he changes his mind.

I think of another feature where you can "nofollow" all external links, it will save from spam and link-juice.

Added strip tags to the "real name" field, thanks.

On the profile html is sanitized, so no urgent changes are necessary there.
