I know Flowdock tries to be helpful by converting quotes, sequential dashes into em-dashes, etc. but this is not helpful when done inside pre-formatted text. e.g. if I am trying to send a command like `do_the_thing --option foo`, converting it to `do_the_thing —option foo` (note — vs. -- before option) will generally break the command when the recipient runs it.
As a general rule it would be great if Flowdock did not perform conversions of dashes, smart quotes, etc. when inside pre-formatted text, both single line like `foo` and multi line like
If that is too difficult, an option to turn these automatic conversions off completely per flow would be nearly as helpful. We generally want our text to be transmitted exactly as-is and don't care at all about it being made slightly prettier for us.
