I think this information should be added to the advanced help page, especially because a lot of the above is not on the Daring Fireball page.
I believe that this is not a duplicate of this thread or any of the other threads on this subject for several reasons, including:

- More in-depth discussion on why the Daring Fireball page is insufficient
- Mention of MySQL and C# as specific places where backticking can be a problem
