    Code (Text):
    There is /* something */ hidden here.
    is displayed as

    There is /* something */ hidden here.

    Since / * * / are common comment tags i'm going to put forth that they're being commented out.

    I agree with -Job-. And there doesn't seem to be any use of commenting out something in a thread where it's only visible in the source code. Since it's not entirely a bug (commenting is a feature in the language itself) I'd say it's just a mishandling of that tag by the forum.

    Hurkyl, I thought that you were the forum bug, now that we got rid of the penguin...

    hmmm it doesn't work with a clean vb, must be one of our hacks, maybe the latex parser is doing something weird.
