Has this been disabled yet? I do not feel that moderating people when you catch them ( emphasis on when...) doing this is at all an adequate fix.
Bara has been on vacation this week, but he agrees that it is something that should be addressed.
both are veteran users judging from their member number and unloved since creation, judging from their karma.
Demigod isn't the only site on the network. Both of them are native to Wincustomize, where Bichur has 153 karma and Night Train has 212.
In any case, if you're so concerned of the danger of being exposed to eeeeevil html, you're free to close the browser window and not reopen it--that's only sure way to avoid it, after all. The internet is a dangerous place out there with all those links and stuff.
We're more concerned with actual cases of people causing trouble for others, as happened in this instance. And while it's annoying that people can make youtube autoplay videos, that's a function of youtube, not the html. Blocking it while still allowing inline video would require custom coding *just* for youtube.
As an example though, even if embeds were removed someone might hotlink an inappropriate image. Should we block images in posts altogether as well because some people might be too stupid or immature to use it properly? Do we have to host all image posts ourselves and moderate [approve before they appear] each and every one? Where do you draw a line?
