Is this a bug?

In a recent post I tried to type several question marks followed directly by several exclamation marks but only the exclamation marks would show, despite still visible in the edit window, go figure…

Edit: Yep it dunnit again

Grammatically I would have thought that it’s a correct method of denoting either outrage or mock/fake outrage, so I dunno why the software wouldn’t t allow it. This post probably really belongs in a first world problems thread…

This forum seems to have embedded markdown

ie putting 3 dashes (—) directly below some text causes a headline

Vs same thing with a line space, gives a horizontal line break

It looks like there’s a limit of 3 question or exclamation marks. Interestingly, if we type more than 3 of one followed by any of the other, it’s all turned into 3 of the first…

10 QMs, 1 EM

10 EMs, 1 QM

Stick to max 3 consecutive for maximal outrage:

!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!!???!!?!?!?!??!!??!???

Although it messes around with code blocks:
10 EMs, 1 QM

Which tears a hole in the fabric of forum time.

I can’t even get a one for one question/exclamation mark to present as typed on this phone…
