I view my emails in plain text. For example, emails from stackexchange look fine both in html and in plain text. When in plain text, they are formatted in Markdown - [name] (url) for links, * text * for bold/emphasis.
In contrast, the emails from Ask Fedora viewed in plain text do not show the links in any way. Before I switched to HTML mode to troubleshoot this, I did not even know that there were links in the email.

2014-09-11 17:36:46 -0500 asked a question Comments markup processing

When a comment is submitted, it is not initially parsed for markdown. You have to reload the page to see the actual processed markdown. For example, commenting **text**, initially it shows the comment as **text** instead of text. When you reload or revisit the page, the text it bold.

This bugs happens on the askfedora site - here the markdown in the comments is not parsed at all - is it bug in askbot or should I contact them?

While I am editing an article on wikipedia and try to navigate in the current tab (reload, back, forward, click on a link), it shows me a JavaScript alert "This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved." It would me nice to have similar alert when you are typing a comment and try to navigate before submitting it.
