El Reg user forum opens to public, HTML for all (mostly)

Silver badge

BB code is retarded. It was before CMS systems had decent HTML sanitising. A lot of forums use WYSIWYG editors anyway. Mostly it simply replaces < with [ and has a bunch of different ways according to extension for Tables and other stuff beyond basic,

Also HTML allows for easier Copy & Paste from existing source.
