But that would destroy much of the embedded whitespace rather than just continuing to not display it (unless the author is unusual, IME, and threw in nbsp entities as well as <br>s). It could also destroy entities or HTML tags or attributes that should have been escaped rather than just continuing to display them incorrectly.

So I still consider such drastic (and risky) edits to be something best left to the node author and not janitors.

[SuicideJunkie]: So, possibly interesting thing; I had that script which was using more than all the ram to open an absurdly large spreadsheet. I set it up to spin overnight nightly, so it stopped releasing memory since it was never fully exited.
[SuicideJunkie]: Didn't expect that to be a problem. There's plenty of disk space for swap, and the memory space would be reused the next day. But apparently virtualbox dies with a guru meditation when there's no physical memory unused on start.
