Ambivalent with the popularity of Markdown.
Not that it isn't clever, practical and readable compared to various HTML incarnations or LaTeX, for instance, but a lot of recent apps let you use Markdown as default writing tool - in places where you would not usually be coding the markup for your text.
Saving the text in Markdown makes sense as an exchange format, but getting people used to injecting [Markdown syntax] ( everywhere is just weird.

@mjjzf id rather write something in markdown than a cumbersome wysiwyg editor, personally

@animeirl I get you - but I mostly write and mark the word and change it wth a keyboard shortcut.
