    To prevent double escaping of certain characters, they are run through MD5 after being escaped once, and then the MD5 is undone at the end. Since the MD5 is the same every time, someone figured out that if you just put the MD5 into your comment, it would be unescaped at the end.

I can only assume "MD5" is something to do with Markdown and not the hash function. Otherwise, what the fuck am I reading?
