Feature request: Disable automatic text conversions inside pre-formatted text

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

 

```

bar

```

 

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.
