Disable @ extension

suggested by Pam Z

I'm trying to write a bunch of documentation in the notebook, but that documentation involves email addresses and repository sources, both of which involve the @. No matter what I do, it always renders as if I'm trying to @reply to a user. Backticks for inline code don't work. A four-space indent doesn't work. Carats don't work. It insists on trying to turn that into a link when I really, really do not want it to be a link. 
I can get around it by putting a space after it, but that defeats the purpose of having something a user can cut and paste. I'm pretty sure this is a codebase extension to regular markdown; would it be possible for code or no-markup syntax to be applied to the @?
