I am unable to use markdown in comments. For example, I'm just trying to block out a snippet of code:
4 Spaces at the begging of each line.
one tab at the beginning of each line.
pre and code tagging <>
copying and pasting with tabs/space from gedit
None work. How can I improve the quality of my comments by using markdown?

There's a "help" link under the "Add Comment" button that explains more about comment markdown:
Comments use mini-Markdown formatting:
[link](http://example.com) _italic_ **bold** code. The post author will always be notified of your comment. To also notify a previous commenter, mention their user name:
@PeterSmith will both work.

You can use backticks in normal
text flow as well.
