2. Documentation should be in HTML
3. Therefore, comments should be in HTML

It's a 100% irrefutable logical syllogism.

They're superfluous as documentation. As my boss puts it, the source code itself is more than sufficient as documentation. (E. g. it is obvious to any sane programmer what a variable viDifvPL stands for in a given context.

Nevertheless, we should all switch to write source code in HTML. Or BBCode. Or Markdown. Or best a convoluted mixture of them.

• So I was going to respond with a poll joke. But then i realized I don't know how to do polls in Discourse. For an iota of a second, I actually gave a shit on how to learn to do something in DissGore. So I googled for "Markdown Poll". And the first thing that comes up is a meta.derp thread about what fucking dumb hacky way should polls be implemented. Followed by response after response of "don't do it that way" UR DOING IT WORNG. And then this gem:

So at that point, I just gave up. Fuck Disocurse, fuck polls, have a bug report from a now banned member of meta.derp.

This was a good one, the first 1000 times or so.

Nope. CWEB. All else is folly.

• He should have stopped with TeX.

• Discofeature request: Enable markup with TEX and CWEB additionally to HTML, BBCode, and Markdown.

• There's a plugin for latex-style math, but IIRC it survived for less than 24 hours until so many holes had been found in it that it had to be disabled.

Hypothetically speaking, of course: is MathJax enabled on meta.d?

At lease this one has @PJH's post-- sixth result, below the fold on my screen-- but that's because I'm not on a desktop hooked up to Frank's 2000" TV.

• Did they get DC formatted for 4k yet? I'd imagine that's getting much more attention than, say fixing mobile in any way whatsoever...

Nice.

... or nested quotes
... or formatting in quotes
... or properly implementing whispers
... or fixing @ben_lubar's latest XSS bug
... or handling @ usernames in polls
... or fixing fucking markdown shortcutsstrong text
... or not requiring a privacy-invading CDN to distribute <100k of colored letters
... or getting a competent QA team
... or getting a QA team
... or getting QA at all

And that's just off the top of my head.

• They used to have excellent QA, but they decided to bikeshed that and focus on whispers instead. Well, we all know how that turned out.

What's up with the ****strong text stuff by the way? I see that in every other post made here all of a sudden, but I don't think I get the joke?
