Not true.. I know MANY forums that allow html. They just filter the hml to only things like a href, img.. etc.

Oui. But not everyone knows bbcode (for some reason) and most people take a Computer science 1 in high school. Which teaches html.

But yeah.. Nothing wrong with having bbcode and filtered html enabled.
Just means that site is more advantageous, in a good way.

I think if pictures were allowed, there'd need to be a max WxH requirement (similar to the line requirement). Otherwise, you'd have sigs taking up a crapton of room and possibly making the page extremely wide (depending on the content).
