Now to find the answer to a bigger mystery: why does my ascii arrows get so messed up? (/ becomes / for example.)

Hi there - are you thinking of using this somewhere? Maybe you said so, and I just missed it in my scanning over it. But if not, would be very interested to hear more about this!

Nah, this was most about structuring up my own thoughts. Maybe I'll use it as a reference here if anyone wonders why [groups of politicians] does not listen to a resoned argument when it comes to [question].

I had a comment somewhere in some diary in a discussion with In Wales where I started to formulate this so it felt logical to follow it up here.

This happens when you use 'Auto Format' in the drop down menu. Switch to 'HTML formatted' and they will show. Or you can enter \ as \\, which will display \ in 'Auto Format'. (Though when attempting aligned ascii it is advisable to use 'HTML formatted' since some other things might display strangely as well.

I have corrected this formatting problem in your diary, in my new capacity of technical helper. I also made another small change in your point 1 (put in a table) to allow for multiline text. Let's see if it updates correctly!
