bleh, markdown. can we not? I don't like how it uses standard characters as the formatting code. Something like vb tags lets you specifically denote which text you want to modify (eg: [b]bold[/b], [i]italics[/i], [s]strikethrough[/s], etc.) instead of accidentally making something italicized because you put asterisks around a word suggesting emphasis. You can't enclose words in asterisks or tildes or underscores without getting some fucked up text effect you don't want.
