I am seeing <p>, .&nbsp, </strong></p> <blockquote>, and kinds of stuff like that in every post that I see making it very difficult to read some of the posts. Is anyone else seeing those?

Monster has done something to help with spam, they are not allowing HTML

Is there a setting that I can change to hide those, something like view regular text instead of HTML? And is Monster working on a fix? Without HTML there will be a lot of post that would just not make sense like the "patches" post, without pictures, if you know what I mean.

I am seeing it when I access the boards from my phone. In fact, last night when I tried to post in a forum I received an error message telling me that I could not use HTML when I reply to a post. Monsters spam policy reminds me of Yahoo's policy of keeping "bots" out of their chatrooms, instead of keeping them away the come out in droves. Keeping spam out HUH? Funny I received spam in my PL message box not two weeks ago, as did other members.

I sure hope this isn't a permanent development. That'd be one sure way to kill off PL and the rest of the old Affinity Labs properties.

Monster has said they are working on a solution. Until they come up with one, it's best to keep posts as simple as possible to make them more readable. Everyone will just have to find other ways of having fun.. Use your imagination. I KNOW you all have some. :)

Matt I was thinking the same thing.


The EDITOR  has posted an explaination in feedback.

right now the 'cure' seems worse than the disease, any post that is quoted, and especially multiple quoted posts are virtually impossible to read/deciper.  I'm not computer savvy so don't understand the HTML explaination, but if not fixed will kill the site, just too hard to make sense of things.

Whatever the fix was, as far as I can tell, it does not affect PM's, like I said, I'm not computer savvy.

The HTML has been disabled for now because of an onslaught of spam, Monster is working on it. For now apparently we will not be able to copy and paste nor will we be able to click quote.

 Is it weird that I'm starting to automatically filter out the crap and just find the words? At first I felt like I was trying to read a foreign language...oh wait I was lol.


As TLeeworth said, the multiple quote posts are impossible.

I sure they get the problem fixed soon.    I'm beginning to think I'm dislexic or something.

I was thinking along the lines of two distinct possibilities.I have either completely lost it(which is a probability)or it is an early April Fools gag by Monster.
