Discription contain regex patterns marked as spam

I attempted to ask a question about regex and textblocks - marked as spam. Are regex expressions not allowed in descriptions? Also the

 block strips any assignments from the pattern:  Is there a way in post code as is?

The problem is just how some special characters end up getting rendered.

As noted above the posting box:
