comment Is it OK to autocorrect users when they have mistyped parts of their email address?
@DoktoroReichard — It would be preferable to just say the user seems to have made a mistake anywhere.

@Wolfgang in his answer says something about checking the MX record not being enough.

This is a more reasonable approach, provided that the system do not go beyond suggesting. The user must have the last word.

A few years ago, some service could not handle my “incorrect” e-mail address having a suffix of more than 3 characters. My e-mail address ends with “.info”. Such ill-advised validation of user entry has to be avoided.

I don't see where the apps in app stores fit in the picture.

comment Should language be part of a website url?
Good point. URL as UI. Easier to share, easier to track, easier to test, easier to debug.

comment Should language be part of a website url?
Your option 2) at the end is fine, but your option 1) is a bad idea. The essential goal of a link is to lead to a resource. If I send a link to a friend and she does not see what I see, then something has failed. First, my friend has to see the page I send her. Then, if the page allows my friend to switch to a language or country she prefers, it's a nice bonus.

This "domain authority" stuff (SEO) would apply too to a site not showing the language in the URL.

comment Ideas for folder / file selector input
This is a good and simple idea. But avoid the word Back in the name of the button. The user does not always come from the parent place.

comment Ideas for folder / file selector input
@vincebowdren - I speak of experience. In one case, the Web browser shows the local file hierarchy. In the other case, the Web browser shows the server file hierarchy, in the same way, to make it look familiar. I have encountered IT professionals confusing both. Now, let onetrickpony do as s/he wishes.

comment How to make a map obviously clickable?
@user568458 - At first sight, I saw 4 maps too. Putting a cross only at the center would be clearer.

revised Using funny error messages in Finance
Restoring the punctuation by the author. This typography is more correct. Furthermore, these curly quotes are in harmony with the curly apostrophes of the text.

comment Does the Oxford Comma increase readability?
My interpretation is that the sentence misses symmetry. It looks that an apposition for "my father" starts but never ends. The sentence is not correct. It means nothing to me.

Your commas and period inside the quotes are absurd. As absurd as the big U in "About Us".
