So, I want to ask if anyone ever tried to send a "left arrow" (<-) in PM.

Same problem.

Fixed the other issue as well with the exception that it only works for CODE blocks - not PRE blocks.
The reason is that CODE blocks use divs with stylesheets allowing us to use escaping of [ to break out of the BBCode parsing. Pre tags are implemented directly as HTML pre tags and hence do not allow escaping (the escape code would show up instead of the actual char).

The solution is of course to make PRE blocks do the same thing as CODE blocks do now:
1) Add a style for pre divs and convince all projects to update their CSS
2) Make 'pre's do what 'code's do now in text_transform.php

I left that as an excersize for the reader.

Fixed the first issue you described, the change should eventually end up here.

Update: Found an issue in inc/pm.inc:pm_send() : A call to striptags() on the content text.
This is most likely a bug - but fixing it requires checking whether any other part of the code relied on the tags being stripped already there. So this may take a little while to fix.

Something eats BBCode tags as well on the Seti forums, when putting it in code or pre tags. Let me test here

That's a seperate issue.

Alright, I've been able to reproduce this on my test project. Looking into it. Does this have a trac ticket?

Thanks for your report about the search system highlighting. The fix for this should be here shortly.
9) Message boards : Questions and problems : SPAM from BOINC (Message 18252)
Posted 5 Jul 2008 by Janus
Post:
I have been receiving e-mails from the domain boinc.dk

I highly doubt that. It is more likely to be a forged email attempting to appear to be sent from our mailserver. Please send the entire email (including message headers) to the contact email found on burp.boinc.dk or post the headers here. (Typically you can access the headers by accessing the message source - view->Message Source in Thunderbird).

Also please note that the boinc.dk domain has a SPF DNS entry allowing any anti-spam firewall to do a crude check of the validity of any email appearing to be sent from that domain.

--

Anyways, thank you for your report (both here and the one you sent to my email) about abuse of our user profile service.
The infringing profiles have been removed from our website and appropriate action taken in order to make a similar event less likely in the future.

The issue is, however, not entirely on our end and the removal of the profiles will not necessarily stop the SPAM that you receive. In order to avoid these issues in the future we suggest that you or your provider protect your webforms with a Captcha so that bots cannot automatically fill out the forms with SPAM.
If you received the SPAM as an email appearing to originate from our servers (addresses ending with the domain boinc.dk) we suggest that you install an SPF-aware anti-spam firewall. The boinc.dk domain and many other domains on the web have an SPF DNS entry which allows any such firewall to automatically detect and reject attempts to create fake emails appearing to originate from these domains.

For more information about the issue and what we have done about it have a look here:
http://burp.boinc.dk/forum_thread.php?id=1166&nowrap=true#8509

I'm terribly sorry about the grief that this has caused both you and us. Spam is a terrible waste of time and resources - I wish there was more we could do to fight the source of it.

Once again, thanks for your report.


Best regards
