in thread 'show as entered' option for poorly formatted posts.

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.
