in reply to 'show as entered' option for poorly formatted posts.

It's an interesting idea. One that perhaps could be turned on until a monk reaches a praticular level - say level 2 for example. Hopefully by then the monk will have learned enough about the way PM works to post with code tags.

There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.

    I believe that the suggestion is not for the benefit of the writer, but for the benefit of the reader.

    Assuming that a poorly formatted post goes through, in spite of the "preview" button and other attempts to make the writer DTRT, EvdB seems to be suggesting a simple way for the reader to see what the writer actually typed, in an attempt to figure out what they were intending.

      Exactly - I should have put it like that in the OP.
