I love the site, however:
- It's just not the same without Markdown
- How am I supposed to get noticed?

@Jeff, In response to your post,
I don't see why you wouldn't allow markdown to let us at least approximate traditional CV formatting (headers, bold/italics, bullets, etc). But if "pandora's box" means abusive use of formatting(?)... if a user wants to make themselves look bad, that's their choice.
I haven't used the site, yet so I'm not sure I can speak intelligently about it. But what am I missing?
I would like it to just work. The same parsing code that's used on Stack Overflow should be used on Careers. I don't want to think about what works over here and what works over there.
I understand your hesitance to open Pandora's box with version 1. It might not be a bad idea to start out with the same restrictions you have on new users. I would be fine with that (for a while).
