    I was just posting in the iOS programming forum about the "dynamic" directive in Objective-C. In code, it's supposed to be prefixed with a @. However, the forum system thinks I wanted to tag a user whose name is "dynamic". Every time I edited my post to remove the [USER] tags, they were re-added.

    CODE tags cause a major break in the flow of plain conversational text when the word is used outside of an actual code fragment.

    However, your reply also shows that the [plain] tags used to show the [code][/code] tags have the desired effect.

    Here's a test of @dynamic and a bolded @class in a conversational context. They don't appear as user-name tags in my browser, but YMMV. So the right answer is the PLAIN tags that were used to show the CODE tags, rather than the CODE tags mentioned within the PLAIN tags.
