Maxim, this is not about my feelings. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, "No one
can make you feel inferior without your consent.". If someone makes a
comment to you that your help is awful, how likely are you to continue
helping him?

I don't disagree but reporting it is different than making comments such
as "forum is awful" without giving specifics. That is hardly helpful.

We have gone over this one in the past. The way the forum engine works
is that it "sees" anything enclosed in square brackets as bbcode. My
choice was to send the messages "as is" with the bbcode or to strip the
bbcode. Initially I was stripping the bbcode in emails from the forum
until it was brought to my attention that this also stripped necessary
information, mostly from regexps. When informed, and at *your* request,
I changed it so bbcode is sent in the emails. I can eliminate bbcode
entirely, but that is the only "solution", albeit not a great one.

How would I have known this? I don't read the Russian mailing list.
Again. making comments like "forum is awful" without this specific
information is not helpful. I can look into this.

I may be able to fix this. I will look at the code.

Again, anyone who knows PHP (I hardly do) is welcome to offer assistance
to me on any/all of the above. Bear in mind, this is not my app and I
can at best place band-aids on it.
