Why cant you delete it? Seems rather silly to try and circumvent it by other means when you should just remove it.

This is the problem:
It's a WebLog news comment page, where You can post absolutely anything You can imagine (in HTML). Some maniac has put a META refresh in it, and PRESTO!...
Since there's no way of deleting a comment (and - in consequence - deletind META Refresh) I'm looking for a way to stop it by other means. (btw: this is not the only thing the maniac did to this site with the META refresh tag)

i dont think you can remove unless you can get acess to the code. maybe if you make your browser to like an old one where does not support anything but i am not sure if that will at all

You are somehow going to have to filter the user input and remove any tags(or other stuff) that you dont want.

Install a proxy server. Add or edit code to strip the meta tags you don't want.
Some starter code here:

As for actually fixing the problem have you considered informing the people that run the site - if its a problem for you its a problem for all their users - not to mention it's a very serious vulnerability (see cross site scripting).
