Forbidding control characters, at least anything < 32 makes a lot of
sense to me. Carriage returns, linefeeds, formfeeds, null characters,
I see no valid reason to allow them and lots of reasons they could
cause havoc.

PILE OF POO or GRINNING CAT FACE WITH SMILING EYES should be allowed
in this day and age though.
