From what I can tell, the issue of puunctuation in SIC ads... or rather, borders, has been a long standing thing. I feel it's time that certain bits of punctuation were filtered out by @access strip_ascii
|-||White||3s||I am just a boy.|
|-||Melpothalia||3m||That's Mrs. Broken Brain [Bottom Text] to you!|
|-||Scarlyt||3s||<3 <3 <3 The admins are the bestest! <3 <3 <3|
|a||Cerberus||2h||Head Builder & GM when I need to|
|-||Gracchus||3h||trapped on a boat to hell|
|-||Diani||3m||Why do you write like you're running out of time?|
|-||Supermarket||3m||Sleep is a sexy lover.|
|j||Johnny||14h||New Code Written Nightly. Not a GM.|
|And 26 more hiding and/or disguised|
I know I don't have a screen reader plus I can be pretty patient. There's something special with the Advertising SIC thoughts that enter your mind. I can picture and understand a sudden bunch of odd symbols followed my a border.
However, I see a flaw with your suggestion. If you remove those (strip them) then the encryption keys will get fucked up and some things others type up can get messed up.
Just from that perspective.
