HTML Stripping in plaintext comment notifications = on crack.

I'm pretty sure I have the classic plaintext comment notifications rather than ESN. (For those not hip to back-room jargon, "ESN" is actually the notification system.)

Quoted from the entry: The leading <a on HTML links is stripped; the closing </a> is stripped too. This leaves one with href="">link text lying out there. Italics are rendered and sent as italics. Usernames are entirely stripped out.

In the comment part of the notification, I see the">link text, but upon hovering, I see that the link goes to [current directory]<a href= , which tells me that something's broken.
