    Forum auto-linked the letter "Z", not my fault.

    I hate that, when it makes an unwanted link like that.

    And that's a problem when it's ambiguous and you can't be sure about a letter (like when a letter in a name or in an email address might legitimately be S or it might be F, but it's impossible to be sure, because the audio quality isn't good enough, S and F may sound almost exactly alike).

    Fortunately, some ppl know about that problem — so the helpful ones will clearly identify the letter, saying e.g.:

    "S as in Sam", "F like Frank", "P like Puppy", "T like Tomcat", "C like Charlie", "Z like Zebra", "B like Bob", "D like Dog", etc.

    there it is again, that annoying auto-linking (of the letter Z in this case).
    Wish there were a way to turn that off.

    I'm editing that to clarify. — I meant: when you can't be sure about a particular letter in a name or an email address — like e.g.:

    "J-O-H-N-F-S-M-I-T-H at gmail.com", if "F" and "S" sound alike, that might be
    John "F" Smith or it might be John "S" Smith, can't be sure about that middle initial if "S" and "F" sound alike.

    I have a very long and confusing last name, as well as a first name that has the "f" and "s" confusion so just got used to spelling it out as a kid and also saying "F" as in Frank or "S" as in Sally... from the time I was in elementary school. That's not the norm though...

    When I worked retail in High School used to have to routinely "call-in" credit cards and would amuse myself giving the letters as the funniest things I could think of on the spot. "F" as in Frankenstein, "S" as in Strudel. Lol.
