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
|-||Mench||10m||I do Facebook and Website stuff.|
|w||Storm||2m||I dabble in the puppeting.|

|-||Kisaki||51s||Do Re Mi, I Love You|
|And 15 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.
