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\$ I voted to close this... please try such things in the sandbox on mse ;) and if you want to change it: ask a feature-request or bug over there... \$\endgroup\$ – Vogel612 Jan 19 '15 at 20:32

    \$\begingroup\$ @RubberDuck Can't. \$\endgroup\$ – Veedrac Jan 19 '15 at 21:11
  • \$\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\$ – Veedrac Jan 19 '15 at 21:15
  • \$\begingroup\$ It's not like I hate the question... it's just not a question that should be around here in this form. \$\endgroup\$ – Vogel612 Jan 19 '15 at 21:30
  • \$\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\$ – Veedrac Jan 19 '15 at 21:42

  • \$\begingroup\$ I had totally no idea that this was possible. Thanks for showcasing some more MathJax. We can never get enough of that stuff. \$\endgroup\$ – Simon Forsberg Jan 20 '15 at 11:31

    \$\begingroup\$ @veedrac my apologies. I didn't realize that MathJax wasn't enabled on MSE. \$\endgroup\$ – RubberDuck Jan 20 '15 at 12:50

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\$ – user63371 Jan 19 '15 at 22:31

    \$\begingroup\$ Interestingly the android app doesn't show this behavior \$\endgroup\$ – Vogel612 Jan 19 '15 at 23:06
