Notice the difference?

yep I see. The comment uses paragraph element and `hr` inside makes html invalid. Clearly user input needs more cleaning/validation.

IMHO, I would turn off non-WYSIWYG input; meaning escape and display, or escape and cull.

What is the filtering done now? I'm surprised I can enter html. Can "offensive" sites cross-post?

Hi. sorry I was lazy about the badges. Will enable them this weekend. Thanks again for reporting the issue, I've actually overlooked it until your note.

Thx. Can you push the fix to the asksage site? The escaping there is still broken. At least I've noticed it is for links....example: underscores still have to be backslashed.

Unfortunately, I can't. I have contacted William and Mike (they run the server) about this. Cheers.
