I have an issue where WP seems to insert \ in front of any " or ' characters. It does not do this on the posts or pages but it does do it when I receive an e-mail from my contact form (GPixel-Contact plugin).
This isn't so bad but I have also integrated a forum into my WP site. Any posts in the forum also have a \ placed in front of any quotations.
Why does WP do this? Is there any way to turn this off or does it serve some purpose?
