Script Injection in Google Groups Beta

When I was testing Google Groups Beta
(http://groups-beta.google.com/group/n3td3v) I found the script tags
executed on the Google Groups site. This only seems to work while
clicking on a reply thread, using the reply menu, featured on a given
groups homepage, when an older thread gets a reply.
If the thread reply you try to open has a script in it, then the
script executes, instead of taking you to the reply to the thread you
were attempting to view.
An attacker can send a reply to a thread on Google Groups Beta with a
carefully crafted script in it, to exploit Google Group Beta users!
This is probably just the tip of the ice berg of something bigger, but
I thought I better mention it before malicious users started
