Maybe I don't know much about Markdown, he says

John Gruber – the creator of Markdown – commenting on Markdown editors and their trend towards hiding the syntax.

Maybe I don’t know much about Markdown, but my understanding is that the whole point of it is to provide a syntax where the most common HTML tags for prose can be replaced by simple punctuation characters that are meant to be visible to the writer.

A joke so dry you’ll need a glass of water when you get it.

Mentions are sent to webmention.io. I fetch the latest mentions when building the site, so I may not see your feedback right away. Especially if my site's broken, which is often the case.

Public replies and mentions might be shared on the site, but I try to do a little quality check first.
