more like stupid fingers. "orgasm" doesn't even correspond to the same keys as "heart attack." So fake.

What happens is people will misspell a word. Autocorrect will attempt to unscramble and fix any letters to the closest thing in it's dictionary. So this is possible.

Everyone on this blog knows how autocorrect works, and no, it's not possible. How is "orgasm" the closest thing to "heart attack" in a dictionary?

ACs also occur when the word meant to be used is spelled correctly.
It needs not be "the closest thing." ACs are random.

They're not random, they're built from proximate keys on the keyboard. Sometimes they'll take a word you typed correctly and change it to a more common word with proximate keys that it thinks you meant. But it's not random.

so what's the final verdict? because so many of the more recent posts seem so manufactured already, just to get the game going. they don't seem natural anymore

Ayie Clavecillas I think a smattering of them were faked to begin with, but fake convos have increased since everyone found this site. I would guess about 1/3 of the ones that are posted these days are fake.

Matt Mitchell I'm thinking the exact same thing. Thanks for the verdict. It's just sad that this site used to be so hilarious. I guess a lot of things really go down the drain after a while.

OKay people, seriously. I don't care if you think it's fake. Maybe it's real, maybe it's not. Imagine it's real. It's SO much more fun than analyzing it to death.

It's not as funny when it's obviously staged. I like the ones that make me laugh, not the ones that make me cringe at try-hards who force comedy. It just isn't funny, that's the point.

Yes Matt, they ARE random. They have NOTHING to do with the keyboard... that's simply nothing but ridiculous. Obviously you don't have an iDevice, don't know anyone that does or have failed to pay any attention to them when they text ...or... understand the common sense of how iDevices work as per the obvious from reading ACs.
Or... perhaps you just don't know what "random" means.
