[geeklog-devel] Handling of exceptionally long lines that breakthevisual flow of the page

Well, there are other ways in which layout-breaking nonbreaking lines
could be posted (and have been posted, on our Geeklog installation). On
our site, sometimes we post long system logs with long lines. For some
reason, many of these were posted peppered with  s. I don't believe
this was intentional; if it was, the intent was to maintain the original
formatting of the logs. Whatever the reason, we ended up with a database
full of nonbreaking posts. If we've run into this problem, surely others
have. Additionally, if a story author with publishing permissions has a
chip on their shoulder, there's no reason to allow them to ruin the site
with one post :)

Well yes, assuming they submit an article and a moderator approves it
without fixing it.

So the problem is if you have story authors with publishing permissions
who are being dicks or an admin that's a retard...
