recent whatsapp convo with the kids: a few messages had comments about ducks (the animals, not any alternative / sound-alike ... long story, but really "duck" is the animal)


every time I type/tap the letters d u c while it suggests "duck" it always also suggests "f*ck"

I thought these [google] keyboards are supposed to be smart and remember what words you used recently, well in messaging I've never sent the f-word, ever. I know some things better not to write down... I say it plenty, but never messaged it.

why no family safe filter on outgoing?
why no family-safe filter on auto-correct?
(best would be default on and settable / overidable by recipient or per message).

for Elephant | [mastadon] 's sake I'm messaging my kids, and while they can be annoying little shites this is not one of those times I want to be owned by auto-correct if typing in a hurry.
