Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Regarding: Did I do my syntax highlighting wrong? If so, what is the right way?

@Oded and I were editing the OP's post at the same time and Oded never got a message saying that the post has recently been edited and was allowed to submit his edit.

I thought this was blocked.

It's not blocked unconditionally. It's only blocked if the first edit was more substantial than the second, and Oded's was the clear winner here.
