My apologies if this is asked somewhere else, or if this isn't the right place to ask it.
One of the elements of Github flavored markdown that I really appreciate is the ability to use a triple backtick (```) to call out entire blocks of code. Unfortunately, SO's version of markdown doesn't support this, and sometimes it's really painful to have to go in and manually add four spaces before a whole bunch of lines of code.
Am I missing something here? Is there another way to do this?
