"Invalid HTML was found" when sending posts and PMs to Community

Level 4

Does anyone else get the message "Your post has been changed because invalid HTML was found in the message body. The invalid HTML has been removed. Please review the message and send the message when you are satisfied." when posting questions or replies or Private Messages? I have just sent a Private Message and got the above response when I tried to Send it. I did not put any HTML in the message (although I did use double-quotes, square brackets and an exclamation as part of normal text), and the "changed post" looked the same as what I entered - it did not remove the characters I just mentioned. On pressing Send a second time it went out ok.

I have had this a number of times in the past when sending Replies to other posts, so it is not a one-off. It looks like the HTML-checking function is too sensitive.
