    Dunno if something got fixed really quickly, but I don't see anything unusual when I quote the OP.

    Seems to only happen if you mark something that has a BB code tag.

    So doing something like [ b this sure is good] will bold this (test: [b this sure is good] will bold this)

    Oh, just tried requoting the OP; I see what you mean. I was looking for a spew of text, but I see the I tag now.

    Seems to treat brackets as BBCode regardless. I guess that's okay, just gotta be careful if I use them in text and cause hilarious results with it.
