Math should be quotable

We have a discourse forum for a scientific software, and use the math plugin. Unfortunately, math is not quotable.

If I select some text, a Quote button appears:

Clicking it results in the following:

[quote]
definition of the closeness centrality:

ci=1N−1N∑j=11dij c_i = \frac{1}{N-1} \sum_{j=1}^N\frac{1}{d_{ij}}
[/quote]

Notice that in the quotation, the math appeared as a weird textual version (unreadable) followed by the actual LaTeX source, but lacking the $ delimiters.

I assume that there is no fix for this currently. It would be nice if this could be improved in the future.
