It's very useful for links and such... could you please turn it on?

I like when HTML is enabled. You can do some fancy things with it too. Usually there's no harm from it, although there are a fine number of exploits for VB/IPB can can be put in effect when HTML is enabled. Granted, that rarely happens, but it's a large site. I turned it off for security reasons when I used to manage forums - a long, long while ago :)

It was enabled in the old forums, I don't think we had any problems because of it then... did we, Jeff?

I think it's off by default. Can't you use the vB language to do links and such? I think so...

Well, yeah, but you can't use target tags and such....
