Journal Journal: Autocorrect for everyone

Can someone at Slashdot please auto-correct people's postings so that:

- it's becomes its (it's = it is, its = belonging to it)
- loosing becomes losing

Even if autocorrection changes the correct form to the incorrect form it will still be correct a higher percentage of the time.

Perhaps it has something to do with composing the tiles from different orbital positions but the result looks very, very odd.

Dinosaurs aren't extinct. They've just learned to hide in the trees.
