broken threading in site wide activity

Also causes threading in site wide activity to break.

Can be fixed in bp-forums-filters.php by modifying line 30 to

$content = htmlentities($content, ENT_COMPAT, "UTF-8");

and line 38 to

$content = html_entity_decode($content, ENT_COMPAT, "UTF-8");

This requires PHP5 though, because PHP4 lacks MBCS support for html_entity_decode()
