We have a user who has this incredibly bizarre habit of starting his answers with a string of dots, and no matter how many times I try to edit them out, he doesn't seem to notice and continues adding them to new answers anyway.
I just edited one of his newest answers, which also has a line of text after it. I only removed the string of dots and left the text alone, but when I submitted the edit, the answer loads with both the string of dots and the accompanying line of text gone, leaving just the code block. You can see this in the post's revisions here:
I don't really care that the single line of text is also gone since it doesn't add anything to the answer anyway. My point is that I didn't remove that line of text when I submitted the edit. I only removed the string of dots. Oh and for the record, I've just encountered this for the first time. Previously, submitting edits on this user's answers with just the string of dots deleted worked fine.
So what gives?
