From George Palaganas https://plus.google.com/101478464558915340741/posts – “I don’t think this is a good idea. The only automation I want will be on spelling. This is similar with Facebook’s tendency to introduce errors in your postings and comments slowing down your work. You spend more time in deleting them(Postings and Comments) after Facebook “added” or “deleted” a word or letter ,correcting them and posting them again.”
