I'm trying to post a movie review and after the preview I keep getting this error message:

Your review appears to include IMDb boards markup in [ ]'s. This is not supported in the user reviews section. Please remove the mark-up tags.

What mark-up tags could this refer to? There's literally nothing in my review being shown in the [ ]'s as an error that needs to be fixed. All I used in the review was a couple of semi colons and paranthesis. I have zero idea what the issue is since it's telling me I have board markups in [ ]'s, but nothing is being pointed out. Any ideas?

I would avoid including any text in square brackets, as these are special characters used for our boards markup language. Try reposting your review without using any "[" and "]"

WTF? Can't post either. I unformated the review in notepad and it keeps telling me I have HTML tags  I typed it in Text editor your text editor to. Your website is creating the tags!
