A great idea on the iPhone (where errors are frequent enough to warrant automatically correcting them) and a terrible idea on the desktop (where it mis-corrects words that aren’t in its dictionary far more often then it corrects actual misspellings).
The “both sides are at fault” people have to know better; if they refuse to say it, it’s out of some combination of fear and ego, of being unwilling to sacrifice their treasured pose of being above the fray.
It’s a terrible thing to watch, and our nation will pay the price.
This isn’t about software offending, and it’s not about censorship either. It’s about having an asshole in your community. Since the community in question has a board of governance, they can decide how to respond. I hope they can look past the free-speech straw man and stand up to this bully.
