The ability to see the raw post

Right now all of the posts display as Markdown (which is great), but sometimes I want to see the raw text for a post.

It probably makes sense to make this an “advanced” feature which is off by default.

This is not terribly hard to do, but I’d love to learn what would the use case be. Is there something you can’t do because of the current structure?

When other users post formatted posts, I sometimes want to see how they did it.

This is especially useful for images (which don’t show the URL at all right now).

I see. That makes sense — essentially ‘show me the source’ button as an educational tool for figuring out how to use Markdown / Aether. Very cool.
