A reviewer edited my post and made product keywords bold. I was wondering if this was an SO guideline (similar to the guideline of not including product names in the title) that I may have missed. Is there something in place to bold product names of "Telerik" and "ASP.NET AJAX" (in my situation, it's referring to this: RadMenu Finding Items Recursively By Value on Client).

Personally, I reject such edits and roll them back where I see them (or edit to remove the bold if there are valuable edits that would get rolled back).

I find the arbitrary bold font scattered around the post to be irritating and makes for a less readable post.

The particular edit is just harmful - it adds nothing and actually removed a good part - the code markup around the method name.

I resisted the temptation to add bold text to your post... but just barely... – enderland Jan 15 '13 at 0:14
I agree; I dislike the bolded text. Thanks. – Brian Mains Jan 15 '13 at 0:34
