Signal boost: jesse_the_k | Markdown Simplifies Formatting Your DW Posts.

Markdown is a popular plain-text markup language that strongly resembles the conventions of email. In fact, posting by email has used markdown for a long time; you can now use it for posting by using the HTML editor and starting your post with !markdown. It also works if you're using a client that takes raw HTML, such as charm or MakeStuff. See Jesse's post for the cheat-sheet, or go to the official spec, at https://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax. Note that most GitHub extensions, e.g. code fencing with triple backticks, are not supported. At least, not yet. There is one DW-specific extension: @username expands to a standard user link, e.g. [personal profile] mdlbear.

So markdown is the standard format that email posts format in? Someone suggested I try writing in markdown in order to bypass the 'unwanted line breaks every 75 characters' problem, but I guess that won't change anything if markdown is already default.

Do you happen to know of any way to convince email posts not to put unwanted line breaks in every 75 characters or so?
