    Disabling html posts

    Is there a way to disable having to post in HTML (and use text only)? It really doesn't work well at all for me.

    You shouldn't be able to post HTML. Are you talking about the enhanced textarea? If you don't like it, then click on the "Normal Mode" radio button on top of the textarea.

    To avoid things like cross-site scripting. It's also nice for these particular forums, as we don't have to escape any HTML we need to post, but the first reason is why most forums disallow HTML.
