 Hi @antonv-

 Backslashes are used in MySQL as an escape character. (See the section
 starting "Within a string, certain sequences have special meaning..." here
 for more information http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/string-

 It sounds like the updates from the bbPress forums added to the activity
 stream are not being escaped before being saved to the database. Which
 version of bbPress are you using?
