    Thread update emails showing formatting code

    It appears I am getting intermittant emails with formatting code within, which isnt supposed to happen, example shown below, it should just show what the actual poster has written, not the colour, font etc they used.

    Anyone else getting these?

    This is just an extract

    COLOR=#000000][FONT=____noteworthy][FONT=arial]Firstly apologies for the new thread. Found many answers searching through threads but this one is quite specific to myself.
    /FONT]
    This is a bit of a long post but I would be very grateful if anyone can time to read it all and can give me any advice on where I stand.
    /FONT]/COLOR] [FONT=____noteworthy]
    /FONT]

    COLOR=#000000]I purchased the car late December from used car dealer.[/COLOR]
    COLOR=#000000]2009 A3 1.9 TDIe sport[/COLOR][
    COLOR=#000000]It's my second car and all in all I'm extremely happy with the purchase.[/COLOR]
    COLOR=#000000][FONT=____noteworthy]

    Nigel,have you subscribed and set up email alerts ? The codes would be just because of not seeing it through ASN.

    Email alerts, by this you mean email updates of new threads, updates to threads, then yes as always have been.

    The code in the emails shown above is formmatting code that shouldnt be displayed in the emails, that code is just for the webpage to decipher not within the emails & its not all emails, it makes its own mind up which ones it is sending with this basic code displayed.

    No it shouldn't be doing that,I assumed the member had changed the font and colour.
    Admin will have to sort that for you.

    I haven't seen it but I bet it's people cutting and pasting a post from one place to another.

    Strange cause I've forwarded several of these emails direct to you anyway, so please look at these.

    Can this be fixed now, its been going on for a while now, still getting PM's with code in, it makes reading some pm's almost impossible.

    I've reported it directly to the powers that be & its still not resolved.

    Here's an extract from another, I have edited it so the code isn't formatted by the site & not displaying what we get on email updates, it isn't showing all the code but gives you an idea.

    Some emails are almost impossible to read with all the code.

    Dear NHN,

    bobwilson has just created a new thread titled - Golf GT or A3 sportback s-line - in the New A3 (8V Chassis) forum of Audi-Sport.net, which you have subscribed to.

    These are caused by people cutting and pasting from a screen, the last one listed was a duplicate of another post.

    This has been going on from peoples new posts that have no cut/paste data used, just people typing text, as I have checked this myself.

    This never used to happen & people used to copy/paste before, so why are emails now showing formatting code?
