Agreed. It's useful in blog-like applications, but in a wiki it's just easier to delete the text. I see no real use case for this, and it only serves to confuse people.

Actually this is [CollisionFree]. TiddlyWiki uses "--" to mean mdash and also uses --strike-- formatting. The formatter distinguishes between a freestanding "--" and "--" wrapping a word or phrase. This is fairly straightforward to implement (I know, because I implemented it for TiddlyWiki).

Not everyone puts spaces around dashes and signatures -- it is the current recommendation for modern typography, but some people follow old style or like to experiment. Also note how this looks in the raw page text -- as if someone inteded to insert a word surrounded by dashes, just didn't make the spaces. But this is a minor issue, and indeed there is a million ways to solve that.
The fundamental issue is "Do we need it hard enough to make Creole more complicated"?
Another concern about it being [CollisionFree] -- looking at the markup summaries on Wikimatrix I see that engines use "--" and "~~" interchangeably. So, no matter which one we choose for "deleted text", we will introduce a conflict with some of the existing markups.

I agree, we should keep creole simple, but not simpler of course :). It should be possible to describe creole on a single ''cheet sheet.'' I never missed this markup in jspwiki. I would't count it to the common things people need. You still can use native markup in a mixed mode to do it. Maybe we could have some ''standard'' extentions for creole in the future, but i think it's to early now.

I am not sure that Creole needs to specify an addition for this rather exotic formatting; I would be for leaving it apart. Otherwise, I think that the {{{--stricken text--}}} syntax is the best because of its intuitivity
