Just discovered by accident that if you use the two letter abbreviation of street that we all know, and put a dot after it, it comes out as 'dung'. I was perplexed when I was pm-ing some directions and it came out as High dung. May be useful to know. Seriously, try it. Are there any others hidden in there?

Seriously put in High St., and it came out High dung (in a pm)... can that possibly be a Mac/safari oddity. Didn't want to waste anyone's time on this, but I swear it did that, several times.

(edit) and on this post it's fine. I'll go away now.

St.

May be Safari? but still no difference on my iMac or MacBook both on Firefox. I don't use Safari..

Edit : - Just clicked. How come High St. came out as High St. and not High dung? We wouldn't be pulling plonkers here would we? :shock: :shock:

I found it out last week when I put "St" Louis instead of "Saint" Louis. But it looks like it may be turned off now, at least from the posts above.

Honest, that is exactly what happened, not worth us all spending time on this, but it took me 4 repeat 4 edits to get a pm to one of us that seemed polite!! Let us all move on, shall we. But it really did keep happening, I am not going mad (hammer)

We believe you Douglas, 'onest? No, of course you are not going mad and imagining things? Dung is springing up all over the place? I ,ean, you just have to look at the map to find Dung Helens just West of Manchester and Dung Martins in the Field in London. There are dozens of them and if you could get them all in one place you would have a huge pile of Dung :twisted: :twisted:

Dung?

That rings a bell :roll:

OK... :roll:

Couple of things:

- can we close this thread now?

- I really wish I had taken a before and after screenshot... cmd+fn+shift+ 4 on a Mac, as we know. I wish I had done that mainly for my own sanity.
