Nononono normal text is like this, but italic text is like /this/ whilst bold text is like *this* and underlined text is like _this_, so when you get some stupid fucker who can't quote properly and posts in HTML you show him you're really pissed off by shouting in bold underlined italicised text *_/LIKE THIS/_*. Failing that you spend half and hour drawing a three page ascii art FUCKER that can only be read by turning your screen on its side and scrolling.
