Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 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

As per Jeff's suggestion in this comment:

You can use this question as a formatting sandbox. You can

  • edit this question itself (Community Wiki questions such as this one require 100 reputation to edit)
  • post answers to this question (Since this question is protected, this requires earning 10 reputation on this site)
  • post comments to this question or its answers
  • test suspected bugs with the editor

Beware that since the changes to syntax highlighting in December 2010, and the inline hints added March 2011, no syntax highlighting is applied unless the question's tags or an inline hint enable it. So, to test highlighting here in the sandbox:

  1. On the start of a line, specify a language inline using <!-- language: lang --> hints, and indent the code 4 spaces as usual. There is a full list of hints (scroll down a little).

    <!-- language: lang-html -->
    
        While not hinted otherwise: <html></html> source <b>goes</b> "here".
    
    <!-- language: lang-js -->
    
        var a = 3;
        while (not (a > 0)) {
            alert("JavaScript code <b>goes</b> here.");
        }
    
  2. Or:

    • Save your post.

    • Use something like Firebug (Firefox), Web Inspector (Safari, Chrome) or Developer Tools (Internet Explorer 8) to edit the resulting HTML. To open Chrome Dev Tools, press F12

    • Find the <pre> element and add the attribute class="prettyprint", or change it into something more specific, like class="lang-vb prettyprint".

    • Run the following in the location bar: javascript:prettyPrint();

@humn instead of a rollback, you can perform an edit with the exact same contents as before your edit (title, in your case) and assuming you do it within the 5 minutes grace period, it will show only a single revision with "[Edit removed during grace period]" - instead of having two revisions. – Shadow Wizard Apr 10 at 10:12

Testing line breaks in sup tags

Everything after a second return isn't subscript anymore:

Neher, A. (1991). Maslow's theory of motivation: A critique. Journal of Humanistic Psycholgoy, 31, 3. [FREE PDF][1]

Mahmoud A. Wahba, Lawrence G. Bridwell, [Maslow reconsidered: A review of research on the need hierarchy theory][2] (1976), or a free pdf scan here

But if you use <br /> there are no issues.

This works very strange; initially is does not work, with repeated edits it 'sticks.'

Markdown regression or not?

  1. If that doesn't work, open terminal and run:

Glad to be of service. I edited your post BTW.... – Brian Tompsett - 汤莱恩 Nov 15 '15 at 21:56

I received a spam via my website contact form from somebody who specify that he got my contact via one of the stackechange website.

Then you may not want your info on there, regardless.
Needless to say, SE has no control on what the world does with info you publicize, and for your info, your SE profile is most probably public.

I understand that SE may not have to deal this kind of spam, but they may be able to track down the profile of the person who did it.

Wouldn't attempting in tracking down the person be just that?
"have to deal with this kind of Spam"?
You understand, but think they should do it anyways?

Who should I contact to report this issue?

Try the Contact us on the bottom, if posting on Meta doesn't get you nowhere.
And let me state that I don't know (and actually think the exact opposite) if that's a right thing to do.

To make it clear :
It's not a matter of private info being used (my website contact form isn't private!).

Your SE profile is?

I don't even complain about somebody contacting me via my website (anyone can do that there are free to do it!).

That seems to be just your complaint...

I just think that if somebody if using SE to spam instead of using SE as it is intended (helping the community), SE should know about it.
Just like they do when somebody if spamming on the forums.

No one seems to be using SE to spam you.
Rather, the info you provided, which is and was your choice, was used.
SE should know about it, if it happens on SE.
Here, it's happening from your website's contact form, via info you chose to provide.

Again, you can post here, and use (without my agreement, for whatever matter it may matter) the Contact us on the bottom, but my best suggestion is to remove that information, as SE has zero control as long as it is public.

How would it help anyhow if they track the person down?

Test for bulleted list with code block.

  • Test Item one

  • Test Item two

  • Test Item three


SELECT Id
FROM Table
Where IsDeleted = 0

Code block followed by Bulleted List need any break tag. Else the code block displaying as normal text.

HTML markup won't work in SO.. testing it here.

<a title="jhddj" rel="relImageStatusUpdate" href="<%= format_status_image_url(row["UserID"],row["USERSTATUS_ID"]) %>" 
id="ahrefStatusImage"> 
<img alt="" 
src="<%= format_status_thumbnailimage_url(row["UserID"],row["USERSTATUS_ID"]) %>"/></a>

Trying pure HTML without the ASP.NET stuff:

<a title="jhddj" rel="relImageStatusUpdate" href="#" id="ahrefStatusImage"> 
<img alt="" src="myimage.gif"/></a>

Testing if links to YouTube are actively inhibited and this bug is reproducible (Preview doesn't match actual answer). Seems like that's not the case (same result without this header).

'Bugger' is used a lot in this corner of the world (Australia/NZ). It is probably about the same 'politeness level' as damn it (and was even the running gag word in a nationally shown Toyota commercial) - though I expect this would be less so if people looked up the definition.

As the link shows, it is definitely used in the type of situations you describe.

Just experimenting with italic code in comments — there's nothing to see here, folks; please move on!

Sample sentence

The design of _Static_assert(constant-expression,string-literal); is the format you want.

That shows the effect I want to achieve, but in comments rather than the body of a question. (I already know how to do it in a question; the trouble is, the same markdown does not work in a comment. That's a nuisance, to be polite about it.)

The code for that example is:

The design of `_Static_assert(`_`constant-expression`_`,`_`string-literal`_`);`  is the format you want.  

It is almost exactly what I want; I wouldn't mind the spaces around the italics being smaller, but the information is a continuous block of 'code'.

Unfortunately, that doesn't work so well in comments. I'm experimenting with what might work in comments to this answer. These options work fine in a question body.

U+2060 Word Joiner

The design of _Static_assert(constant-expression,string-literal); is the format you want.

The design of `_Static_assert(`⁠_`constant-expression`_⁠`,`⁠_`string-literal`_⁠`);`  is the format you want.  

U+FEFF Zero-Width Non-Breaking Space

The design of _Static_assert(constant-expression,string-literal); is the format you want.

The material above originally had U+FEFF code points before the leading underscore of constant-expression and after the trailing underscore (similarly for string-literal). This was shown/verified by copying the material before it was submitted. After the text was submitted, the U+FEFF parts were gone. I don't know whether Firefox (44.0.2) on Mac OS X 10.11.3 did the damage or whether SO did the damage.

U+200B Zero-Width Space

The design of _Static_assert(constant-expression,string-literal); is the format you want.

The design of `_Static_assert(`​_`constant-expression`_​`,`​_`string-literal`_​`);`  is the format you want.
