Oops, sorry.  I was trying too hard not to create a duplicate, and am
surprised it isn't already on launchpad, having seen the Sourceforge
report you mention.  Should I resubmit as a new bug/request?

I'm using 2.1.12 and still seeing the error - I gather the fix was to
add a lookahead exclusion based on the current options template.  Having
seen quite a few recent injected HTML attacks on the lines of Gumblar, I
wonder if it would be adequate to block on the basis only of meta
refresh, iframe, script src= and certain JS keywords like unescape and
str_replace; on the other hand, the badwords list is probably not that
comprehensive: it doesn't exclude possible XSS routes like embed, object
or the obscure table background=javascript:....

IMHO a "trusted list admin" option would cover most needs most easily -
giving SSH access to an (untrusted?) user might create greater security

I shared the list administrator's misunderstanding of the FAQ reference
because of context.
