8. Hi folks

Once again this is related to some behind-the-scenes maintenance we've been performing. We're checking into a fix, but it appears that you're more likely to see this if you're using an older browser.

If you are seeing this, could you do me a favor and reply to me here -- give me a link to the thread and paste the sentence where you see it occurring. It would help us to know which characters aren't being displayed properly.

Thanks!

10. Here's a couple

Nancy nails it. (https://www.democraticunderground.com/100213835732)

�We don�t have shared values. That�s just the way it is.�

� Speaker Nancy Pelosi, quoted by Politico, on negotiations with Republicans over a coronavirus relief bill.


Louis DeJoy crippling the US Postal Service... (https://www.democraticunderground.com/100213836067)

�The cardinal rule is, �don�t delay the mail,� and we�re in a 180-degree switch where we�re delaying mail every day,� adding that if the system is not fixed before election season, �it�s going to be a catastrophe.�

THIS IS ON PURPOSE.

Louis DeJoy�s wife also works for Trump.

Thanks in advance

11. Aha, smart quotes

The bane of our existence. We have had a problem with smart quotes displaying properly in the past.

Are you using an older browser by any chance? And thanks for your help troubleshooting this.

We seem to have a character set issue which is just affecting some users. We are investigating.

17. Thanks for that. I am just wondering why I am seeing ads everywhere, even in the thread lists,

And even clicking on the x does not get rid of them.

Looks like it shows up whenever you type quotation marks. Like this 😁

20. Same here...

Just popped in to find out what they were.

I see them in place of quotes in many articles.

Browser: Latest version of Firefox.

21. On further inspection...

It seems to include certain forms of punctuation like apostrophes, too.
