Default disable forum code within [code] blocks?

Does this code snippet look wrong?

some_array[0] = 0;
some_array[1] = 0;
some_array[2] = 0;
some_array[3] = 0;
some_array[4] = 0;
some_array[5] = 0;
some_array[6] = 0;
some_array[7] = 0;
some_array[8] = 0;

I don't think it's fair to expect someone to type [brace]8[/brace] when all they really want is [8], especially since a lot of the code posted here is just pasted from some other source.

I guess I can see why someone would want to highlight, change the font color, bold, italicize, etc... some code to illustrate some point, but at the very least, the 8-ball thing has GOT to go.

Take care,

Take care,
