So how do some websites allow that without people completely damaging them?

Depends on how they do it.  Probably not by permitting embedded Javascript.  Do you have an example that I could examine?

An example I can think of is on Tumblr, you can "Schedule" the exact time your posts are posted.

Ah.  An explicit way of telling the website you want to schedule something is fine, the problem is specifically embedding user-supplied Javascript (or other code).

Of course, the problem with an explicit scheduling mechanism is that, as the app developer or website runner, you have to code the feature...

Thank you for explaining this things in the simplest terms possible.  They are almost making sense to me. ;)
