How about newlines within comments ?
Shouldn't comments on StackOverflow be multi-line too?
Just like with posts. Sometimes it's difficult to discuss and present
example code in comments to other people's posted answers
If you're needing to respond to an answer with code, something has already gone wrong. If you're another answerer, edit and expand your original answer to include any code needed to fully explain your position. If you're the asker, edit your question. For anyone else, we actively discourage these discussions within a larger question. We want you to start or encourage the other user to start a new, focused, question and keep the original question on-topic.
I think it should. Code snippets can be very useful for discussing an answer.
