New users barely preformat text

More like a feature request, but even though there's a nice button in the input text area, new users don't seem to realize it and they usually end up bloating their question with unformatted text, which is in a lot of cases very hard to read. Is there a better way to have them use the preformatted text feature?

What I can think of:

  • Make the button larger
  • Add a text, blink it (too classic)?
  • Run a smart script to detect inline code that's not preformatted?
