Microsoft Word: now autocorrecting your text to conform to Newspeak

a new MS word feature performs politically-correct autocorrections:

Dave Cullen is exactly right here: controlling what people think they should say is precursor to controlling what people do say is precursor to controlling what people think.

Use LibreOffice.

Both Cullen and LibreOffice are great! Thanks Commander and HeadSet.

Yet another reason to never use Microsoft products.

The last version of Windows I used at home was NT 4.0. For work: Win 2000.

Word needs a PatNetSpeak plugin that changes all pronouns to FUCKFACE! and words like policeman to CENTURION! OF! FREEDOM!

I haven’t used word for so long, maybe since I had a Windows craptop for some job 25+ years ago.

I’ve used google docs and turn off auto anything while I’m writing something.

I always preferred AppleWorks but it’s gone. I have an old MacBook that can run it still, but googledocs is saved in the cloud by default which is sometimes convenient.

The thought police are out there trying to get us to call illegal “undocumented” , Wuhan “Covid”, etc.

As a rule I don’t use Microsoft stuff and never bought their software.

Why anyone would actually buy Office is a mystery to me.

You get to download 'politically correct Word' for free when you get your Gates Implants with your mandatory immunizations.

I had set up all my companies computers with LibreOffice/OpenOffice and it worked great for years. Problems only came up with items like some outsider sending an Excel file that used eye candy formatting in the main title. Nothing in the meat of the spreadsheet, just the needless graphic that was incomparable with Calc. Also workers want to be able to put "Excel" or "Word" experience on a resume. I ended up having to spend thousands of company money to equip workers with Office. Unless you are a firm that uses VBA, there is no real reason not to use LibreOffice.
