You haven't made clear what the bug actually is here, or what you have to do to trigger it. What did you type and what was the user called?

I'm guessing that you typed @_nick_. Annoyingly, that is ambiguous and the common mark system does parse that the way we do, though that's not taking mentions into account.

Thank you for reporting this issue. It has now been resolved and we are aiming to include it in a future XF release (2.1.0 B7/RC1).

Change log:
Disable inline markdown parsing for bold/italic when immedicately preceded by an @ symbol, as this may indicate a user mention.
Any changes made as a result of this issue being resolved may not be rolled out here until later.
