We used to call them the spelling police, (someone I would have problems with often) this way we would avoid any undue flack from the mods and admins conserning inapropreat stuff. They got on me so often at one time I rewrote Miranda rights for them, So in order to bust someone for bad spelling you hafta read them thier Miranda rights for bad spellers.

It confused the manure out of them to such an extent that they have not been that much of an issue since

Apologies in advance for this very pessimistic post, but this issue has been aggravating me for a long time. The autocorrect system is not just "cleaning up" our posts; it often changes them to read as something that was never intended - sometimes making it appear that there was something bad in the original word/phrase when there wasn't. Such as the way Donahoo's weekly party comes out as "Expletive Party" :shock: Really? Really? What IS she doing during these parties??? If anyone knows Donahoo and is familiar with her parties, then you know this word is waaaay out of line.

I brought this up with Ryan Warzecha since I have him on Facebook. Yeah, you can't say many words which people use in regular conversation, one in particular which is a very positive term in the LGBT community which upset me since that's how I identify. Ryan said he'd forward it.
I feel for you, Yali and wish it would change, but I'm so pessimistic about it by now that I wouldn't be surprised if they simply added "LGBT" to the list instead of releasing the word you want to use.

This 'Public Trash Can' thread probably is the wrong place for this, if people are series about getting this issue corrected.

In the interests of "education" (i.e. rather than doing it for you), if you think something is in the wrong thread, wrong section, or deserves to be a new topic, then report the post (the little '!' button at the bottom right of the post) that is the start of where you think the split should be and say so. The side benefit here is that you then know that Cyan will have seen it.

Yes I have used that before, I was hoping people would make a new topic if interested, instead of me getting Cyan involved. Oh and to anyone else reading this, all reports to Cyan are private so it's a handy thing.

UPDATE: On the other hand, this might be a good time to use it, so Cyan might want to see this as you point out.

If, in a few days, there are no repercussions for the posts already made, then I might be inclined to begin a fresh thread on the topic.

I'll gladly support a motion to repair the AutoCorrect.

"He died doing what he loved."

That has to be the worst sort of betrayal, to be killed by your love. I want to go doing what I hate, so I get off early. It makes more sense.

Absolutely! It would so much more sensible to succumb while filing paperwork or loading the dishwasher, not while riding horseback or relaxing in the spa. Sheesh.

Edit: Dang! Got beaten to the posting!
