If you are copying and pasting anything, this one is for you. (Credit to Yukon for the image)

 

There is an option on the toolbar when you make a post that (literally called options) that allows you to set anything you paste as plain text. Then you do not get any weird formatting issues when you copy and paste something here.

If you do not want that set as the default and just want to paste as text as a one-time thing, you can also hit the "paste as text" button which is two buttons to the left of the options button.
