I noticed this website loads stuff from https://www.mathjax.org/ , what is it good for?
Is this some fancy complicated math plugin for this forum?

Yeah, I can see that apparently something is going wrong, but the idea was that you would be able to write LaTeX and get it rendered. Useful for math-discussions.

MathJax is awesome, though I don't think I've actually ever seen anyone use it here before.

Well, I did mention it in a post, but that was ages ago and I guess it doesn't show in the editor or anything.

Also since it is not working for some reason, no wonder people don't use it

It does not show, it does not work, but it is still there...
