Comment Filter Hook
There seems to be a lot of clammor for this, how did that one guy put it? Chew off his arm or something...anyway, if you look under the Smilies discussion, the SmartyPants thread, and so on, a lot of people are interested in writing extensions that filter comments after a formatter has done its thing.
I can think of several good reasons to want to do this:
- Comment spam -- filter URLs in links to viagra/gambling/porn sites.
- Filter language -- what if my site is rated G?
Smilies and Smartypants are two more good examples.
