    Please MSE......


    It's extremely tiring, nigh on impossible with some others, to read sentences like this

    She!!!8217;s ignored me so far and the only email I!!!8217;ve received from her to date is one telling me that she!!!8217;s opened a file for me.

    This has even affected your own staff:

    I understand it's a general Apple/punctuation technical issue, but that's not insurmountable if the will is there. Is it?

    I *only* access the forum on my W10 PC via Firefox
    I use the green forum


    I've never, to my knowledge, had any of my posts mangled but several that I see do contain the nonsense.


    IIRC, I once quoted a message which wasn't mangled when I read it, but was after quoting!

    It's ?33! Been bad the last few days, every post I've written has been affected
    if you lend someone 20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it

    Hi folks

    I'm sorry I've taken a while to come back to this.

    I definitely want the issue rectified and have been chasing it behind the scenes but it's not necessarily a quick fix, if we can.

    It started after a change we made resulted in this problem occurring on certain Apple devices.

    Many of you have sorted it using the guidance in that article (see our original thread) but that doesn't appear to be working for all of you.

    Unfortunately our tech team has a large workload covering all of MSE, not just the Forum, and in terms of priorities it's not the highest for them.

    I'm doing my best to find out whether there's any more we can do in the meantime but please bear with us.

    Thank you!

    Andrea

    Thanks for the update and keep on it please Andrea.

    Did you get a chance to talk to MSE Karl - I doubt he posted the above link from an iphone but stand to be corrected?
