Ok one more time with feeling. HTML makes a forum vunerable to HTML hacks and attacks. If you turn it on malicious code can be introduced in to the forum software and it's game over.

If you turn on HTML you're asking for major league trouble.
It's a security risk most forum operater/owners rather not take.
