I have slashes showing up in my issues/comments

If you see slashes added to your issue/comment next to quotes (single or double) then it probably means magic quotes is enabled on your server. Magic quotes is an old "security" measure in PHP that generally just causes problems these days, and has been removed from PHP 5.4.0.

If magic quotes is enabled in your environment, we suggest you disable it (contact your hosting provider if you're on shared hosting).

Bugify doesn't add any slashes to your input. Bugify stores un-escaped content in the database and escapes the content as it's being output.
