Agreed.

That is also a significant negative. We certainly don't want users to be troubled when they copy-and-paste into editors.

If we were seeing Tynt generating significant attribution links back to the site, then it might make sense to ask posters to opt-out on a broswer-by-browser basis. However, since we are only seeing an insignificant number of attribution links back to the site, the benefit of Tynt does not outweight the negatives for a forum like ours.

We greatly appreciate feedback from our users. Thank you very much.

So that's what was doing that? Started seeing that appearing but had no idea why. I agree, it's not a helpful feature. Humans can just edit that out besides, whereas automated trawlers would never be copy/pasting in the first place.

I too wondered what was going wrong. Some cut/paste of "CODE" sections lost line breaks and gained a spurious link reference line. No good if you wanted to run some piece of code through a syntax checker.

Till now, I was in the impression that it is my browser/clipboard/terminal issue or something like that.
Since I copied the code only once (with this issue), so I wasn't much worried about that.
I completely agree with the other member's remarks mentioned above.
