Is there a way of turning of BBCode/HTML in a message completely?

I thought that code tag would do that, but it does not. For now posting e.g. PERL code requires conversion to HTML entities, which is tedious. What is worse, when I try to edit the code, all entities are converted again...

It depends on the moderator’s decision, as I understand May 12, 2009

You may be able to use HTML in your posts, if your administrators and moderators have this option turned on. Every time you post a new note, you will be told whether BB Code and/or HTML is enabled.

No. I suspect ProZ.com doesn't want users to give technical assistance to other users, so they don't give the option to turn off BBCode and HTML in an effort to discourage folks from posting solutions with code-like stuff in it.
