There is something wrong with your browser if you are seeing the raw html of community.
However, the code you're posting does not look like it is coming from the community site, it looks like raw velocity from jira
If that's the case, then someone has modified the Jira you are looking at and broken the velocity templates being used. You'll need to get that fixed.
It is community site right. ( It has nothing to do with JIRA )
The same thing happens at home or at work. ( and others also )
Oh, I see, you've misunderstood the post.
It is not Community doing this. That is definitely Jira .vm code - it actually says that in the posting (note the linkblock.vm)
The grey area is a code block - it's used to highlight and format code, as the poster said in the post.
Now, I would guess this is quite an old post, probably from the previous version of the site. When old stuff was migrated, control characters were inserted into a lot of code blocks.
To read it "properly", you'll need to convert them. It's an old post though, so it might not be worth it.
