Meta question: What is the asterisk for?

Wait, I think I just caught it as I was typing. No text, right? Never seen that used anywhere else before.

While I have anyone, does the formatting on this site just not work? I try to use excerpt and blockquote tags for pasting articles and things, but never worked for me. Something I'm missing?

Thanks in advance!

2. Formatting went away after the supposed

election day "hack".

The asterisk, just something children use.
