Don't Follow the Script

Rogers Cadenhead: An aggregator that doesn't strip out script and other dangerous tags is a security exploit waiting to happen.

Randy: Let me wildly disagree. It doesn't matter what you do, somebody will always find an exploit. Javascript is generally safe. If the aggregator fails because of the javascript, then it's not a good aggregator. MHO. A great aggregator can display HTML w/ embedded Javascript, w/out a worry.
