>>>> quadruple quotes

> single quotes

>>> ***three quotes but with bold italics????***

it seems like it would be good to include the formatting messages section from curi.us/2202-how-discussion-works , here is the section ***not quoting it because i think doing that would mess with some of the formatting :

Formatting Messages (from: curi.us/2202 )

The title and author fields are optional. Some markdown formatting is supported:

*Italic* and **Bold** are written with asterisks.

Links: A link is automatically created from a URL with whitespace before and after it. You can also do: [link text](url)

Images: ![](image url)

> block quote

>> level 2 block quote (add more > for additional levels)

A level 2 block quote is used to quote a quote. A level 3 block quote is used to quote a quote of a quote. And so on. Contrary to markdown, blockquotes apply until the next newline, not the next double newline.

You can refer to other messages like #1234 and it’ll create a link to the message. Click “reply” at the bottom of a message to auto-generate a reference. Click “quote” at the bottom of a message to get the full text with block quotes added (then just delete the parts you don’t want to reply to).

You cannot edit or delete your messages. If you want to change something, reply to yourself stating the correction. I will try to make message links keep working forever.

Fight Back is an organization, endorsed by Michelle Malkin, for crowdfunding the defense of Kyle Rittenhouse. fightback.law says (emphasis added):

> *Conservatives are not the silent majority; we are the silenced majority.* Social media companies have shut down conservatives while favoring far left radicals... It's time to #FightBack by making social media companies do what they said they would they do in the first place: let all people, including conservatives, freely speak their minds.

According to The DC Patriot, Lin Wood, the main attorney behind Fight Back, will be defending Kyle Rittenhouse pro bono. Wood previously represented security guard Richard Jewell and Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann.

#17638 Reclaim the Net, Facebook scrubs all searches for “Kyle Rittenhouse,” will remove posts “supporting or praising the violence”:

> If users search his name Facebook will say they "couldn't find anything."

> Facebook has suspended the Instagram and Facebook accounts of a 17-year-old teenager, Kyle Rittenhouse, charged with murder after shooting at men who were pursuing him in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Tuesday night. Facebook is also blocking all searches for “Kyle Rittenhouse,” preventing posts, photos, videos and even news articles from appearing when a user searches his name.

> Instead of alerting users that they’ve hidden the search results, Facebook instead tells users that it “couldn’t find anything.”

I have deactivated my Facebook account.

Guys *there is no markdown processor for curi comments*. It's just some regular expressions implementing specific features. There are no extra bonus features coming from a library.

> With lightning speed, the Associated Press adopts Democrats' language on SCOTUS: adding members is now "depoliticizing" the court, only "critics" refer to it as "packing."

[image of the following AP story quote:]

>> Bullock said that if Coney Barrett was confirmed, he would be open to measures to depoliticize the court, including adding judges to the bench, a practice critics have dubbed packing the courts.

it seems like a problem to me that you can't write some formulas where the multiplication operator is represented by an asterisk on this site without accidentally triggering asterisk italicizing.

e.g. h*h*(1-h)^2

i guess its not that big of a deal and i can live with it
