> Why don't you use block quoting?

Because error messages are by their nature something you frequently want to communicate quickly and inline? 
Here are some examples of backtick breaking communication: https://gist.github.com/zverok/a4fcacab3dc06d9d7585c82cad8a8dc6

Feature #16495: Inconsistent quotes in error messages
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/16495#change-83971

* Author: Kolano (Kenneth Kolano)
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: matz (Yukihiro Matsumoto)
* Target version: 
----------------------------------------
Error messages use inconsistent pairs of quotes, for instance:

```
-e:1:in `<main>': undefined local variable or method `foo' for main:Object (NameError)
```

where a back tick is used on the left-hand side, and a single quote is used on the right.

The same quotes should be used on either side of the elements being quoted.
