:marseysnowflake: Microsoft copies rdrama's slur filter and launches "inclusiveness checker" for Word :!marseylongpost2:

standard.co.uk

aevann/carp did M$ pay you all reparations for this?

:#marseycapymad:

Microsoft has launched an “inclusive” spelling tool that offers politically correct alternatives to commonly used phrases.

The “inclusiveness checker” highlights phrases or words the firm believes could offend someone based on their gender, age, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

The Word feature, which is able to look for “socioeconomic bias”, then suggests alternatives deemed to be more “woke”.

Among the suggestions are changing Postman Pat to “Postal Worker Pat” as the former “may imply gender bias”.

It also recommends amending “Mrs Thatcher” to “Ms Thatcher”. In addition, it proposes users change “mankind” in Neil Armstrong’s “one giant leap for mankind” to “humankind or “humanity”.

Other words to change include “headmaster” (Word suggests “principal”), “master” (“expert”) and “manpower” (“workforce”).

The new spelling function has been rolled out on the latest version of Microsoft Word in Office 365.

When switched on, spelling mistakes are underlined in red, grammar errors in blue and "inclusiveness" issues in purple.

Some Twitter users praised the checker as a neat tool that will help people overcome “subconscious biases”.

Digital strategist John Bull wrote: “Your spellchecker will now help you to start overcoming your subconscious biases.

"It’s a brilliant feature. I wish they’d make more noise about it."

However, others criticised the tech giant for “cowering to the woke brigade”.

In a statement, Microsoft said: “Microsoft understands that not every Editor suggestion may be suitable for all users and all scenarios. That’s why we let users be in control of their final output. Editor is a completely optional tool that users can turn on or off at any point. Editor does not make any autocorrections.

“The user has control over which suggestions they choose to use, if any. They will be able to turn on and off each one of them individually.”

It looks like you're trying to use the exclusive term "woman".

The correct, inclusive term is "fronthole".

You wrote, "John is a trans rights activist." Did you mean, "John is a bussy blasting, trannny chaser?"

Much like public transportation in the US, there is no greater threat to the prospect of widespread Linux adoption than people who use Linux.

I think there's the reason why. I did run linux in parralel with my windows build for shits and giggles but had to abandon it because neither MS nor Adobe support it and that's a no - go for me. Games that ran natively in Linux ran great. I also didn't want to fuck around with Wine and the Terminal. The terminal I could learn but I found there were too many instances of me looking up forum posts where people would post "OK just type these commands into the terminal and don't worry that you don't know what they're doing and that they run at a really low level in your OS it's cool trust me bro".

This is already a problem on phones, especially for "intelligent" swiping keyboards. Makes me especially mad since they are theoretically capable of learning words specific words, but still have a blacklist for nono words. Very patronizing.

Took a bullshit course in the last term of my MBA on Communications for the Digital Age or something

The prof was a hyper woke post wall foid

Got an A in all of her assignments because every time I had to use some third person I used she/her instead of them/he. She even proclaimed in front of the class that my assignment copy was the standard model which the rest of the class should follow :marseytroll: :marseytroublemaker:

No, I write a lot of different stuff but it's mainly for corporations to sell things. I write something and a PR person will know an editor at these places and get it published.

As much as I agree with kissing ass to get to the top you should probably shoot for second place next time. If a teacher ever singled me out like that for my "wokeness" I'd probably kill myself
