Autocorrect Run Amok

That's right. There's a website for that, for collecting the funny, stupid, silly, and weird things that autocorrect does. Peggy Robin wrote about the incident that happened to me, in which my daughter at college asked me if I could send her some chopsticks, when she actually meant to type chapsticks. (And the dutiful dad that I am, I sent Karen a package of chopsticks, figuring that they were for some college dinner or something.)

The website, Damn You Autocorrect is the world-wide repository for all of these valiant, though often flawed, attempts to turn us into better spellers.

It's great that to have autocorrect. But maybe it's better that autocorrect doesn't work right all the time.
