If I want to ask something like "Is it a List<String> or a List<Question>?" it gets printed as "Is it a List or a List?" which obviously doesn't make any sense.
I can surely replace < by < and > by > to present the question the way I want, but that adds that extra effort I actually don't want to put in and I also don't think about it everytime so I only spot it when I actually posted the question which adds the extra irritation to discover the need that your question needs to be edited.
Isn't there any tag/feature/option to disable Markdown?
Or better, just disable it forever (as every decent forum does) and only allow users to write HTML when posted in a certain tag, e.g.
[html]You <em>may</em> write <strong>HTML</strong> here.[/html]
