This isn't a question or a problem. I just saw this and laughed out loud at my computer monitor, then decided to share it with you.

Hoping you is having a Merry Christmas! dontknow.gif

Your computer must obviously be detecting that you are close to that other country to the North, Canada, eh? It's just being helpful. Just as I am sure my computer would autocorrect "you" to "y'all" if it detected where I live!

Merry Christmas to y'all ... SEE, look what it did!

I find the spell checker (2016) to be rather Spartan. It recommends dropping adjectives and adverbs such as "actually" in "The data actually indicate." Often the sentence can get by without the adjective or adverb, but sometimes you do want the emphasis. "While it is commonly believed that A=B, the data actually indicate A=A. becomes "While it is believed that A=B, the data indicate A=A."

Also as Dennis pointed out, sometimes the spell checker has an issue finding a verb's antecedent.
