I would like to remove some options (font color, font size and font style) from posts and the Redactor toolbar. Is this add-on the best way to accomplish this?

@AndyB please change the protection level of Andy_BBCodeParser_DataWriter_DiscussionMessage_Post->_messagePreSave() to protected, as it should be.

It is causing error's with one of my custom addons.

Works GREAT! With permissions set, Admins/Mods can insert full-size photos but normal users can't. Without this add-on, dropped-in photos displayed full size even though I had used Andy's Remove Image Insert add-on to disable full-size photos.

I didn't realize that it doesn't work in conversations. Our primary reason for using it is to prevent "normal" users from inserting full-size photos in posts. I HATE scrolling past 10 full-size photos that don't interest me when our 250px thumbnails are big enough to decide whether I want to look at them full size.

Having it work in conversations would be nice, but IMHO not essential. It's MUCH less of a problem in conversations than it is in threads/posts.
