Commenting Suggestion

I was just wondering… when commenting on projects, studios, or others' profiles, Scratchers are not able to bold, underline or italicize words. I think it would be helpful if those options were added, because then I could put emphasis on something without making it look like I'm shouting it out. That way, communication would be more compatible when commenting on somebody else's work.
For example: "Wow, that's really cool!“ instead of ”Wow, that's REALLY cool!“ That would make it easier to understand the tone that the person posting intends.
I do understand that not everybody would use these settings, because some people write in text language and abbreviated speech, so it wouldn't be very important to them. But for all the people like me, who would use a possibility like that, it could be very useful.

Examples of possible uses for this: ”Everybody who enters this CC will be acknowledged.“ or ”Please DO NOT use this."

I just want this idea to be considered, and possibly carried out.

Hmm, I see why you'd like this but no support - project comments are meant to be simple and I think formatting them would take that away from them.

Well, it could stay simple, if it were something like this: you just hit Control I, Control U, or Control B, then it would italicize, underline, or bold whatever is highlighted, or something on the lines of that. I think it that commenting could stay simple, because plenty of people probably wouldn't really care in the first place. But for the people that would care, I think that it would be very convenient.

Support. Buttons like on the forums would be useful as well.

It might be a good idea, except I can see it being spammed:
COOL! Wow, this project is really COOL! Hey, you should TOTALLY check out my AWESOME project, link

Sorry, no support. As Northmeister said, it would take away from the simplicity of the comments. And as AonymousGuy stated, it could be spammed. Someone could do this:
LOOK AT MY AWESOME PROJECT NOW!!!!!!!!!
Which would very well count as spam.

The typical age of a non-foruming scratcher is much lower than a foruming scratcher, so yeah, it would be overused and abused a lot - too much for it all to be reported.

Well, just about anything can be spammed. There are plenty of people who always use all caps and never turn it off, so how can you say that's okay and this isn't? I'm not supporting spammers, I'm just saying, it's not like people don't spam at all in the first place. Spam is just about unavoidable no matter what you do.
