Damn You, Autocorrect! Stop Killing My Freedom of Speech!

Compare the impact of an aunt reminding you to not curse every single time you tried to, or a primary school teacher reminding you to "talk in English" whenever you slipped into your mother-tongue in school corridors to that of your phone's autocorrect.
