strikethrough function

After a bit of research on the forum, it would seem to me that there is no "strikethrough" function on this forum. Any chance this could be added?

Re: strikethrough function

What would you need it for, and what value would it provide to the forum?

His screen is getting covered in white-out...



EDIT: Sorry, meant to add to that. Sometimes it is useful for emphasising a word which perhaps was used wrongly and normal editing would lose the point.

Re: strikethrough function

I would find it useful in some cases of post editing. Of course not in the case of spelling mistakes, but for example when updating/correcting information given in a post. Deleting and rewriting can sometimes make the thread hard to follow. Leaving the post with incorrect information is, well, in my opinion wrong.

Of course, with greater powers, comes greater responsibility...

Re: strikethrough function

I mentioned this before, but other than adding comedy to my posts i dont think there is any real need.

If we had a vote though i would be for it!

Re: strikethrough function

I can only think that it'd be good for sarcasm.

As per the Register

This doesn't have the same effect:
