Bugs in automatic corrections

    Here are a couple of bugs on the automatic text correction algorithm HubPages uses.

    First, a word was corrected, but the algorithm missed the same word later on the same line. If you're going to make a change, please be consistent.

    Second, a "correction" was made, but nothing was changed. The term "light years" is correctly spelled and then "changed" to the same correctly-spelled form. In other words -- no change!

    Hope this helps.

      It's not perfect, it does make mistakes. You have the choice to accept or reject the corrections.

    Have you tried refreshing the page?

      I don't think either example would lend itself to a refresh, especially the second one. Did you look?
