    Re: WUS's Incorrect Autocorrect

    I can't think of any offhand, but I've seen sooooo many cases of autocorrect being auto-error, or totally messing up homonyms. Auto complete is another grammatical disaster waiting to happen, for the same reason.

    This thread should be good for some laughs, so thanks for that. :)

    You’re not using an IPad by any chance are you? Because they just love to do that.

    I wouldn't blame WUS - it's the operating system/browser that's to blame ;)

    I do not use the autocorrect feature so alas all errors are of my own creation.

    Don't think it's the site, but rather the browser dictionary.
