I think the strict definition of when to use sic can cover a multitude of non-standard "formatting" in the original text being quoted.

I didn't realise there was that broad usage for it, makes me feel somewhat better.

Electric shavers. First time I tried one and it didn't work at all. My Dad was saying you have the stretch your skin and press really hard. He also said it needs a few weeks to get used to your skin?. I gave up and used a disposable one.

The Welsh FA doing nothing and letting Jonathan Bond from Watford change his nationality to English grinds my gears. Keep rubbish like Sam Ricketts in the squad and leaving out a decent young keeper.

Exactly. I've seen dominate being used in the second sentence far too many times. It doesn't even sound right.
