in thread Wiki-Style syntax for posting

Well before Wiki's where widely used those tags where called "Universal Bulletin Board Code Tags" they are meant for user posting and where made to restrict the use of Markup tags so the webmaster or programmer can pick and choose what they wanted to allow the user to use.
Now that Wiki's use them the history of these tags has seem to of disappeared and it very much surprises me that none besides myself remember this.
So to make a comment that there only for Wiki's and that people will confuse this site with a Wiki, seems like you have no knowledge of the true history of these tags.

Spiel auf Hündinnen.
