    I have three questions regarding autocorrect here:

    1. Is the autocorrect I experience here part of this site or is my own computer somehow responsible? This can be rather inconvenient given that we use a lot of obscure, historical nouns, and a post can swiftly become mangled as the software wrongly guesses what the poster meant to type.

    2. What in the heck is the deal with that phenomenon in which I am typing up a post (usually a longer one) and any typographic error which triggers autocorrect automatically shrinks part of the text once the autocorrect kicks in? When this happens, it can be a very annoying bug.

    3. Can I, or anyone, do anything about either problem?

    It has nothing to do with the site. It must be a software installed on your computer / device, most probably an extention of your browser. Get rid of it and you will be fine.

    I have this problem too, from my experience, when that happens, undo and write that part on a new line before posting it.
