darkshadowsseeker had posted this, "LUCK! LUCK! LUCK! LUCK! LUCK! LUCK! LUCK! LUCK! LUCK! LUCK!" , but had used some badly-formatted "marquee" mark-up (causes text to scroll across the screen). The marquee wasn't really the problem, but the bad format of the HTML (it was not nested correctly and thus didn't end inside the comment box, but outside of it, at the bottom of the page) broke the page.

SC used to allow people to type their own HTML in comments, but because of problems like this I changed it to such that people had to use the site's own markup codes. This extra layer helps prevent issues like this (and there are worse things). But, old survey comments like that still allow direct HTML for compatibility.

I was thinking about this the other day. About all the giant letters that were used by other users. (sounds like a drug problem)
