Actually I save the forum posts to the DB in non-converted markdown and
filtered of any unwanted html.
Should I save the raw unfiltered post to DB and then (1) expand markdown
and (2) filter with StripScripts only when _displaying_ the post? That
would entail keeping some potentially "unclean" posts in the DB and
having to StripScripts them repeatedly.
