Default Apostrophes being doubled

Isn't that kinda odd? Sorry if it's been mentioned before.

Sounds like some buggy protection against SQL injection.

Look at the date of the first post, and it still is not fixed (notice that I did not use a contraction). What makes it even worse is that it doubles the error if you need to clean up a typo. I know that this is a marketing company but for goodness sakes hire some pimple faced kid with a pocket protector to get the software right.

Rant off:

I will tell you something, it isn't going to happen and it isn't going to happen anytime soon.

1. The ADMIN of this forum is hardly ever present.

2. The forum upgrade was to happen six or so months ago. Hasn't happened yet.

3. ADMIN trys to ask why and they beat around the bush and give him/her a BS answer.

4. The ADMIN isn't doing its job as an ADMIN to get a straight forward answer.

Yeah I am bashing the ADMIN as it were, but if this was my forum I'd be demanding an answer as to why it hasn't been upgraded yet.

So please bear with us while we all wait for the never going to come forum upgrade.

And the double apostrophe multiplies when you reply to a post.

Also, when I move/delete posts, I am unable to notify the poster because of the system failure. So my only option is to close & refresh.

Another disabled function is "Contact VF". My email came back as a result of failure.

I will email one of the admins from my private email (I can almost imagine S70driver shaking his head and saying "It ain’t gonna do any good[8D]").

Oh well, I have nothing to lose by notifying the admins.
