    Sure, this is very minor, but it is in fact a bug.

    If you use separate [S] tags next to each other, with a space in between, Xenforo seems to try to help by combining them into one tag.

    For instance: [S]one[/S] [S]two[/S] becomes [S]one two[/S].

    It seems to be an issue with the rich text editor, even if entering the bbcode directly. Once I publish or switch to BBCode view, the tags are combined. If entered directly in BB Code Editor, it works fine.

    Try it with 2 spaces instead of one.

    one two has 1 space between the /S and the next S tag.
    one two has 2 spaces between the /S and the next S tag

    Yes, it seems to merge adjacent strikethroughs separated by a single space or a line break.

    We have a new version of software we'll be upgrading to shortly and here's the reply to the query from the developer:
    "I've changed this in 1.3 (the next version which we'll be upgrading to shortly). We have a "tag simplification" process that reduces the tags to what should be an equivalent appearance but with fewer tags.

    Unfortunately, we can't completely do this with general spacing, so I've adjusted it to only work across lines (which is what it was meant to handle, as the WYSIWYG editor would generate more tags than strictly necessary for each line.)
    "

    Hope this helps and some progress was made—yea.
