Congrats on five years!!

Regarding editing... Lets not forget having to do the ampersand thing for several symbols like square brackets and less than and greater than. And given the prevalence of BBCode, it can be a bit frustrating having to switch gears when creating posts here. And could we please have a <bq> shorthand tag for <blockquote>!? Or even <quote> to be more similar to BBCode.

And I wish they had a plain text mode and check box to lets us choose (and default to plain text). Maybe put a separate text box in for entering code (where everything inside would automatically be treated like it was in code tags and readmore tags if appropriate. I suppose the argument would be many people would not use it properly, but that applies fairly well to the current situation as well.

With that said, the cons are, at the end of the day, annoyances. It's like having major pros and minor cons.
