When I went to change my sig today (for the first time
in a while) it would not let me save my user info. The
error message given was:

Content filter encountered for bio
Reason: Please use fewer 'junk' characters.
Saving bio aborted.

My bio contains my "Geek Code", as it has for some
time. (see http://www.geekcode.com/ for details)

The text of my geek code is:

    Unfortunately this is a side affect of us trying to prevent
    page widening and other attacks. Patches are welcome.

    I could certainly provide a patch to allow this, but what
    attacks are possible via bios that you want to prevent?
