    Block Letters

    When I type EBR (all letters caps) in this post, it gets transformed into Ebr.

    World Filter Problem ?

    I noticed that, too, last week or so. Thought it was just to keep us from "yelling" at eachother.

    NOT that any of us here at the WAB would do that!!

    I am still trying to edit my post to get the acronym correct and it still doesn't work.

    A Filter To Keep Us From Shouting? It's Possible.

    Ebr? Ebr. What Does Ebr Stand For?

    You May Have Guessed That This Was A Test.

    This Was Only A Test.

    Oddly enough, one can capitalize WAB but you can NOT capitalize EBR...interesting...

    Or actually you can!

    Hmm....

    EBR.

    That worked.

    IT DOESN'T WORK WHEN THERE'S TOO MUCH CAPITALIZATION, I GUESS.
    What I don't want to see is the Bills winning a Super Bowl. As long as I'm alive that doesn't happen.

    SOME AMOUNTS OF CAPITALIZATION ARE ALLOWED BUT TOO MUCH TRIPS THE "SENSOR"

    Shipwreck - They don't know. They have no idea. LoL!! They may not come right out and admit it, though...

    Kinda like asking TH for directions - I guarantee you, that when it comes down to it, You're going to have to go in and ask for the directions yourself.

    From a defective memory it is (something like) Engins Blindes d'Recconnaisance. I bet the spelling is wonky, but it sounds rather like that, Hot Patter.

    It doesn't work when you attach an image to the post :

    1. Type a word with caps for all letters
    2. Attach an image
    3. Post

    Caps is only retained for the first letter of the word.

    Example in the next post.

    Not THAT defective, Glyn.

    Actually pretty good compared with what Google returns for EBR =
    Engin Blindé de Reconnaissance.

    Same problem with the title of a post : TITLE (all letters cap, no space) becomes Title.

    Any solution out there ?
