Probably not. Some people don't like it when the answer completes before they finish typing it. "Pittsburg" for example. So either way some people won't like like.

Still, forgetting the "s" doesn't mean you don't know the answer... And Pittsburg does work on every single quiz on this site, wether people like it or not. I think you should reconsider ! :)

DMV employees are far too talented, professional and proactive to waste on such trivial things as insider trading investigations.

Dominos MUST have the apostrophe? Really? I only typed it like 14 times and yes, you would think once I would include the apostrophe but not getting credit for the answer for that reason...come on!

That's exactly what I thought with the punctuation which is why I wasn't bothering. Today it went through like a charm. Typed it about 40 times yesterday and could not get credit...weird...but apparently fixed.
