Recently there has been some
code formatting appearing in
highlighting. A couple of comments have been left by myself and Mad Scientist, and I began editing the formatting out before coming across this previous discussion between MadSci and Lo Sauer.
At least three community users have expressed disagreement with this practise (myself, MadSci and the upvoter of Mad Scientist's comments), however Lo Sauer makes the valid point that "Unless it is explicitly prohibited, I will prefer that formatting."
Do we need to explicitly prohibit it as well as the implicit don't do this it looks terrible that exists currently?
A further point for discussion would be the issue raised by Lo Sauer in his rollback "reverted to initial formatting... terms or phrases are highlighted; "see: How To Edit: always respect the original author" thanks".
