comment Simple method for reliably detecting code in text?
@Konrad: In addition to my above comment and in response to yours, I don't believe the Jeff is improving the UI by taking this path, but merely treating the symptoms of an underlying problem. If the UI was improved so that the mistake couldn't be made, then the solution of alerting the user would not be necessary. I am under no illusion that my example is the final solution but some thought needs to go into the question "are we presenting this in the best way possible?".

comment Simple method for reliably detecting code in text?
Thanks for your additions to my answer. The example I gave was merely just that, mocked up in all of 2 mins. It was just a way of illustrating that whilst we can go through these very technical resolutions for a variety of different problems, the easiest one may be staring us in the face.
