Why isn't `markdown` _rendered_ in topic titles?

Hi,

I’m wondering why markdown in topic titles isn’t rendered. The topic of this thread is probably illustration enough, but just in case, here’s one from our internal instance:

I’m not sure there’s an official reason we never added support, but I know personally I am wary of people trying to make their topics look more important by adding bold, underlines and such.

Having said that we do support emoji which can be overdone too, and it’s generally not a problem.

We recently added max emojis in title to help control that.

It would have to be an opt in thing, I can see people trolling with this extra power.

I am not strongly against it for programmer heavy forums, also mathjax blocks are needed for math heavy forums.

There is very little precedent out there though, Stack Overflow which is super programmer centric does not do this. I would recommend starting out with a theme component here.
