I've turned BB code back on in the Wishlist forum.
When we receive a complaint that spam is the biggest problem on our forums, it is worth a little experimentation to us. While spammers will just move to a different forum, figuring out what deters them can prove useful to us in at least decreasing the problem. So I apologize for your frustration in the Wishlist forum over this last week. We appreciate your ideas and feedback on what works well and what doesn't. Please be patient with us as we experiment here and there to find what works best.
