crazy story time: in the early days of MetaFilter I allowed HTML in comments and someone exploited it. Back then I filtered out a list of "banned tags" but @lhl had a better idea: filter all html & only allow a "safe" list back in. He wrote the code, then rewrote it in PHP and it got baked into the b2 blogging system.

So now whenever anyone edits any post in Wordpress, the content gets checked and bad stuff filtered out because some asshole made a MetaFilter post with 88px purple fonts in 2001.

Few people have heard of Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin (1900-1979), yet her dissertation was hailed as “the most brilliant PHD thesis ever written in astronomy.” She discovered what stars are made of.
Whenever we look up at the stars twinkling in the night sky, let’s remember that very exceptional woman who gave us the knowledge of the true constitution of our universe.
