In MathJax, does

\$\renewcommand\LaTeX{\textbf{u got hax'd}}\$

affect other people's posts?

This is it being used in this post. Definition:

\$\renewcommand\LaTeX{\textbf{u got hax'd}}\$

Usage:

\$\LaTeX\$

(I'm just curious, is all...)

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Vogel612 As I said to RubberDuck, "Can't." I don't care enough for a feature request or bug, either. If you really hate the question, I don't mind it closed (I have my answer) but it's not like there's anywhere better to put it. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Vogel612 The close reason you've given contradicts the question: this is about "the software that powers the Stack Exchange network within the scope defined in the help center." It's also better here than on MSE, IMHO, since it's not enabled on MSE and it's enabled differently on different sites (albeit I'm not sure how big those differences run). \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @veedrac my apologies. I didn't realize that MathJax wasn't enabled on MSE. \$\endgroup\$

Let's try it, shall we?

\$\LaTeX\$

At the time of writing, this shows up as the modified, \$\textbf{u got hax'd}\$ variant for me, although other clients - the Android app and SOUP users - report different results.

    \$\begingroup\$ If you are using SOUP, this answer won't appear to be hax'd. (See Ilmari Karonen's answer from meta.math for more details.) \$\endgroup\$
