If you're screwing with the content of the messages, then yes,
it does affect the other ways that the information is accessed
- and that includes adding stuff like markdown or html into the
messages. If it's something that just affects how the content
is viewed in the web forum, then that's fine, but it needs to
not mess with the content of the messages
