The mystery of the alt text warning in a post with no images

+2
−0

Amusingly, a post about alt text triggered the missing alt text warning:

A post containing a code block that triggered the alt text warning

I can see why the warning was triggered - the post contains the markdown for an image, which has the standard placeholder text instead of a meaningful description. I'm very much in favour of the alt text warning in general, but in this case the markdown was inside a code block so the warning is not needed (there is no image in that post).

I'm raising this for completeness as it's technically a bug, but I don't see it as urgent to fix - I wouldn't be surprised if this is the only time it ever happens...
