At least for me, putting a literal [ in the chatterbox works, but the problem that you are trying to present is when you close the [ with a ]. That was just a little imprecision on your part, but you do present a good point.
in reply to Two links, and a name.
Update: I just figured out that you can always make your brackets links by doing [something] which would appear like this: [somthing]. However, there should still be a better way of doing it.
Update #2: Doing: [Your stuff here] also works, even with multiple sets of brackets like [some] thing [here] , which would be typed in as: [some] thing [here] .
