Because someone could inject a virus code into their post?

There is a risk but that person should know HTML pretty good in order to do that.

Ok. I can make this clear. It is impossible for a member to infect your forum unless they have some sort of access to the database... But "you" don't even have access to the database, so god knows how this "hacker" would be able to.

Secondly, most features of html have been disabled on Forumotions forums anyway... For example: You cannot create tables in your post using the conventional method.

Thirdly, your "hacker" would have to post a external link to a site designed to create a virus.

Fourthly, despite the fact that most of htmls features are already disabled. Html is in no way the language that people use to infect peoples computers, it is probably the most difficult.

Fifthly, people use a multitude of languages to create a browser based virus. Html is rarely the only one used, and since only html and BBCode is allowed, it would increase the difficulty by far!

In summary:
It is nearly impossible to "infect" your forum with a virus. A "hacker" cannot create dangerous things in simple posts.
