bbPress is giving me a headache trying to figure out how to remove <br> and <p> tags from existing post in the database after an import. I have tried editing "formatting.php" but with no results except to hide all my forum posts for a day. Any suggestions?

remove_filter( 'the_content', 'wpautop' );

This plugin also does something like that, though I've never used it:
