    What is it with these bizarre strings of letters and numbers that keep appearing on this website !!!8217;t??

    Certain banks, NatWest included don't allow you to use symbols or punctuation marks in your password which seems daft- makes the password a good deal safer.
    Maybe that's also why folk are locked out?
    Being polite and pleasant doesn't cost anything!

    It's actually an apostrophe (or should be), some iPads are having problems apparently .

    Believed by some to be connected with MSEs efforts to prevent spam on the forums, blocking of non English characters and words.
