Why We Use bbcode?

I am developing a website in which I have used a comment box for the users to post comments. I want to understand that why we use bbcode, whether we have htmlspecialchars(), and mysql_real_escape() like functions to protect our data?

I mean if I wrap the users submitted data with htmlspecialchars() and mysql_real_escape() and store it to database then I pull this data out of the database and Display on a page decoding the html using htmlspecialchars_decode(), would it be an insecure way. And is there any chance to be done some thing malicious with my data? If yes, How bbcode can save me?

Using bbcode the administrator of a particular forum can enable/disable which bbcodes an user can use while posting a listing. This gives an additional level of protection.

Anything that can be done for or about HTML with bbcode can be done using PHP.

I would ask why you are allowing any HTML in your posts?

bbcode is like a shortcode which allows user to insert functionality which developer has created using a short code which is defined for that functionality.
