When asking a question the 200px height is not enough.

This is especially true when dealing with large pieces of code: you have to do a lot of scrolling to see it all.

I'm not necessarily asking for a float out increase; perhaps we could have a nice jQuery expand button that makes it taller, or maybe some sort of user setting.

Also, I don't believe any of these things could have a negative effect, and they really would be useful.

especially true when dealing with large pieces of code... hmm, maybe we should make it smaller – Shep Apr 21 '12 at 11:41

In my browser (FF) there is a handle below the text area so I can drag it downwards and make it any size I want.

Chrome and all other modern browsers do the same. Text area

It's there in Chrome too. – ChrisF Apr 21 '12 at 11:35
Yep, all modern browsers do the same. Touchscreens (ipad, etc) don't, though – Manishearth Apr 21 '12 at 11:36

I'm pretty sure this is part of WMD, not a browser feature (the actual editor input is set to resize: none). – lunboks Apr 21 '12 at 11:55
