New issue 3766 by Markup should be optional in review comments

What version are you running?


What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Open a review comment dialog for any code segment
2. Start typing text

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

The new markup feature in review comments is nice.
However, in some cases it interferes with what
the user is actually trying to do. For example:

* The browser spellchecker does not work in the new control
* Typing any code, especially multi-line /* */ comments
with * on each line, easily confuses the markup engine.
Typical C++ defines surrounded with _ also confuse the engine.

Bottom line - there should be a user preference to switch
to a simple multi-line text control like it was before
the markup was introduced.

What operating system are you using? What browser?

Windows, Firefox.

Please provide any additional information below.

The markup control should be optional, controlled either
through a checkbox in the user preferences or, which is
better, in the dialog itself to allow posting different
comments depending on the needs.
