Even now, this website is telling me that texting is not a word, so I can't imagine how auto correcting phones manage to make any sense at all.
I sympathise. There have been times when I've been stuck with a phone or a very basic computer, and it is difficult and frustrating to try and write a long post. For me though, it's worth taking the extra time to (laboriously) scroll back and check and correct, just so that my post will be readable and user-friendly.
Haha, autocorrect is indeed pretty evil though
