    Default Markdown shenanigans

    It seems that there's a Markdown plugin*somewhere which tries to inject Markdown tags whenever I'm using VB-tags.

    Like so: Test
    When the stars threw down their spears
    And watered heaven with their tears:
    Did he smile his work to see?
    Did he who made the lamb make thee?

    See the asterisk above? I definitely didn't write that one.

    I don't see an asterix in the OP, only in your third post.

    you don't see plugin*somewhere in the OP?

    I don't see it either.
    Last night as I lay in bed, looking up at the stars, I thought, “Where the hell is my ceiling?"

    It's this irrespective of browser and platform? Do you have any text replacement tools installed? Have you tried turning it off and then on again?

    Wait, so only some of us see the asterisk in Khen's post?

    Correct.

    I'm seeing it now but didn't last night. Different browsers though so no idea if that helps or not.

    Okay, this is very weird.*Happens in Edge, no browser-addons concerning text replacement.

    Okay, this is another test. Just to see if there's a rhyme or reason as to where the asterisk strikes next.

    Or, indeed, if he will strike.

    edit: Obviously not always.

    Aimless:

    No asterisks given?

    Okay, I can't really figure out where and when those things are coming from.

    I declare those who do not see these asterisks to be right-thinking users, while those who do see them to be pinko fascist terrorists. Do I hear a second?

    At this point I'd like to propose an alternative hypothesis:

    I'm seeing asterisks in most of Khen's posts now across the forum even where there is no vB code.

    I did see two of these asterisks he's enslaved into service myself today, in the Brexit thread. They stayed in his text for me when I quoted him, is that normal for these semi-invisible asterisks?

    Whatever problem exists, I think it's on Khen's machine, although it is weird that sometimes some people can't seem his asterisks. Unless someone else is also spontaneously generating asterisks?

    Interesting. Still curious why the asterisks are not permanently visible though.

    I see them in Khen's posts, too. To be honest, I totally assumed he had picked up a very strange way to indicate emphasis on some words...
    It would be nice if we could get to a place where our community didn’t need a constant stream of fresh corpses to remind it how to behave.

    "Science and faith are fundamentally incompatible, and for precisely the same reason that irrationality and rationality are incompatible. They are different forms of inquiry, with only one, science, equipped to find real truth. And while they may have a dialogue, it's not a constructive one. Science helps religion only by disproving its claims, while religion has nothing to add to science." - J.A.Coyne

    Khen, did you get a chance to test the solution in the link I posted?
