    Can't enter code and results in message


    I'm a new member, and am attempting to ask a question that requires entry of Terminal commands and results. These contain the "at" sign, so apparently trigger detection as an email address. This is prohibited for new members, and creates a big problem in trying to accurately relay my question.

    I will try to find a way around this, but it's really something that needs systemic attention!

    If anyone has a suggestion on how to deal with this, please reply!

    Try putting at instead of @, or a space on either side of @.

    I already got it done. I had to do all the cut and paste into a text processor, then do a find and replace, etc...

    It's just kind of silly and a pain in the (*), even though I know why it's done.

    It would probably seem less silly if the site was littered with links for larger man parts and Rolex watches to put on them...

    Yeah it's a workaround but overall worth it imo.

    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    I guess if you can afford a Rolex you can wear it wherever you want, but it would make it more difficult to check the time.
