    Autocorrect when trying to type email addresses. If there is an @ in the middle of a string of letters you would think it would know that your typing an email address.

    It only happens to me when I open my phone in the morning after letting the tab sit open all night, foreground or background. I can't reproduce it any other way. I use the DDG browser. It appears to have something to do with how it refreshes the page when I select the app and tab.

    Painting everyone with the broad brush of racism really hurts their credibility. People who do this just start to sound like a bunch of snowflake Karen's. No matter had hard one may try, calling me a racist doesn't make me one.

    "Collaboration" tool. https://slack.com/. It is more than just an instant messenger. My employer switched to it a while back. It's annoying.

Turn around and there is some sort of solicitor. I've got bearings and micro Shimano parts in my hand and say, "Sorry, it isn't a good time for a solicitor now. "She yells, "Oh, Okay, it is a bad time for a black person to come to your house". I say, "No, it isn't race, it's me working with small parts and timing." She goes from my house to the black guy across the streets house screaming about me being a racists the whole way. Since that time, I'm replaying the thing in my head and thinking how that could have gone better. Little shit people say and do occupy too much time in my head. Wish I wasn't wired that way.
    Sounds like a few folks here on TGR! Perhaps the young lady spends her free time hanging out in PolyAss.

    In all seriousness, though. That's messed up. What an a-hole. The term "racist" gets thrown around way too often. It's hurtful, most often unwarranted, and is just used a way to shut people down. "Don't have a rebuttal or dislike someone for offending your precious sensibilities? Just call them a racist! Then they can't do/say anything back to you. If they try and defend themselves? Just call them racists for attempting to defend themselves. Then call them racists again for having the audacity to point out they are married to a black person, or mostly have black friends, etc. Are they black themselves and you still find yourself disagreeing with them? No problem! Just accuse them of INTERNAL racism! Boom! Check mate." Yup. That's how it goes these days.

    Um, if multiple people, on separate occasions, have called you a racist, I would stop blaming them and take a hard look inside yourself.

    Actually never been called a racist, I was speaking to these broad generalizations that if your not POC your a racist.

    While I was self employed, I was giving an employee a ride home and I was followed by a cop for quite some time, finally was like fuck it and pulled into a 7-11, cop followed, did nothing but give us the stink eye. Mark apologizes to me explaining it was his fault. I'm like, what crap, he's like man that is the way it is. Eye opening.

    Get to his place and we hang out on the stoop enjoying a cold one. Now as his neighbors walk by they are looking at me funny. Finally Mark says, "he's cool, he's not one of them." That was the 90's we have a long way to go. There are good and bad people out there, give people a chance before you start with your unsubstantiated judgments.

    Sorry Super that you have been called a racist multiple times, I'm sure your a decent guy.

    I had a dog who was a racist. God rest his soul, he passed a few years ago, but he didn't like African-American people.

    Nah man, Iíve never been called a racist. Everyone is racist though, so people who say they arenít are delusional or lying. Only difference is people who actively work on it vs people who donít.

    Racist dogs definitely exist. Itís trained into them by how their owners react.

    Fuck Microsoft for continually changing where they hide the setting to get rid of the fucking Bing Toolbar.

    Last time I did this it was hidden in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Wind ows\Explorer
    But that path no longer exists

    If any of you IT dentist know where it's hidden, please let me know

    It's prolly just me...

    It annoys me when a friend calls and leaves a voicemail. (Where I come from, common sense requires that if I hear a VM prompt I hang up and text any message if appropriate)

    It annoys me even more that I'm too stupid to figure out how to gently explain these things to the offenders...

    Change your VM message.

    "The number you have dialed does not have voicemail setup"

    "The voicemailbox is full. Goodbye"

    Everyone has different "rules" when it comes to stuff like this, and it's annoying to try and remember everyone's personal rule. On my end, if a friend calls, I would like them to leave a VM if they want me to return the call. Seems silly to expect them to hang up, open a different program, and type a message to me when they can spend 10-20-30 seconds leaving a message. It's not like it is hard for me to listen to a VM.

    But again, that's my personal preference, the fact that everyone has their preference and gets annoyed when someone doesn't communicate in their preferred way is annoying.

    Voicemail to text is the answer. Plus it occasionally leads to some hilariously poor translations.
