-AlexSchroeder: I've seen people use it; but this causes problems if multiple dashes amount to an indented list item, because some people like to sign {{{-- AlexSchroeder}}} at the end of their contribution.
At line 18 added 2 lines
-AlexSchroeder: Why discard something that works?
*[[YvesPiguet]] less common than hyphens in plain text, no conflicts with signatures and rules
At line 31 added one line
-AlexSchroeder: With an asterix, this eliminates the confusion with simple emphasis often used in plain text, whether the wiki renders it bold or not. Putting a bold word at the beginning of a line only to see it turn into a list item is strange. With a dash, this eliminates the confusion with an ordinary quotation dash used to intrudce a signature. Otherwise a signatures like {{{-- Alex}}} will turn into a list item containing {{{- Alex}}}. That's too surprising.

-[[AlainDésilets]]: **strongly**, for the same reasons exposed by [[ChristophSauer]]. To which I would add that in my empirical observation of wiki users, I saw many of them type a space after the asterisk, and about as many of them type no space after the asterisk.
-[[JaredWilliams]]: Don't see why its necessarry just for disambiguation.
* [[YvesPiguet]] most common, provided disambiguation with bold is clearly defined.

-[[ChristophSauer]]: **weakly** there should be unified way for parser developers that want to simplify escaping, but it should be optional, since I agree that escaping is hard to understand for endusers. Also it's not Creoles goal to add new markup, that was not there in other engines. Therefore I opt for escape as an addition - a suggestion to solve a certain problem in an more elegant way than using nowiki.
-[[ChristophSauer]]: there should be unified way for parser developers that want to simplify escaping. Escape character should be in the core. Without the escape character (be it \ or ~) I feel that the spec is not "round" - we are not giving answers to obvious questions.

-[[JaredWilliams]]: **weakly**.
* [[YvesPiguet]] strongly, much cleaner than triple-braces in some cases. Must be simple, which is very easy.
At line 62 added one line
-AlexSchroeder: What for? Plus: We don't have a good candidate since \ is used as a path deparator by some operating systems. All proposals are very complicated.
At line 72 added one line
* [[YvesPiguet]] weakly (backslash also possible if defined cleanly)
At line 80 added 2 lines
-[[JaredWilliams]]: generally excepted escape character almost everywhere else.
At line 98 added one line
* [[YvesPiguet]] strongly
At line 127 added one line
* [[YvesPiguet]] strongly
At line 132 added 2 lines
-AlexSchroeder: I use a variant of nowiki that renders as monospace, and I'm happy with it. No separate solution required.
-ChristophSauer: Like Alex: nowiki that renders as monospace, I am happy with it. Wiki markup should be simple. Common things people need. Less choice is better.
