    I agree to an extent, but if you're worried about flash, no one is forcing you to keep flash player installed - even youtube has an html5 player now.

    I remember people being banned because they put hidden flash objects that played music in their sigs and it took forever to find them. I don't think it constituted any risk to users, but it was annoying and creepy.

    The only flash in here is youtube and the ones Rydian made! And if people don't update it it's their own fault! To bad. Should have known better.

    I occasionally use it for YouTube videos with altered dimensions:




    Or for the GBAtemp mp3 player:

    I bet there's a way to modify the YouTube tag code to allow an MP3 tag. Seems safer, and feasible!

    How about we don't? Be serious, how many times have you seen someone trying to compromise the safety of the site with flash tags? [​IMG]
