An include() for Javascript

[ #24105 ]

TorgoX is a genius. A maaaaaad genius who will soon DESTROY US ALL!!!! Meanwhile, he produces stuff like this.

<script type="text/javascript"    src="js/bootstrap.js">   </script>
<script type="text/javascript"    src="js/the_real_code.js"></script>

the_real_code.js now has bootstrap() (or in my version, include()) available and can include other Javascript files right in its own code... JUST LIKE A REAL LANGUAGE! Golly!

      One way in which people can abuse sites is by posting comments that contain ridiculously long strings of characters with no spaces in it them: web-browsers don't have anywhere to split the line, so the box they are in gets massively extended sideways, pushing out other columns, and generally messing up the page.

      Slash avoids this by inserting spaces into long 'words', with the unfort
