From time to time someone's blood pressure spikes when the plural 'aircrafts' is used in the Aviation forum. Would it be possible to implement a simple script in the system to delete the superfluous s's? (Interesting: https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/46824/why-does-the-incorrect-plural-aircrafts-seem-to-be-occurring-more-often)
It's not feasible to scan and change user input to the site - if we were to do it for
aircrafts people would want it done for
alot, and many other words that cause people to twitch and foam at the mouth.
We could blacklist the word
aircrafts from the site (prohibiting its use anywhere on Aviation Stack Exchange), but that seems a little extreme: Among other things it would present users with a very unfriendly and confusing "The word
aircrafts is not permitted on this site!" message, which is a really lousy first impression to make on people just because their grammar is cringe-worthy.
If it really bothers you that much feel free to edit the questions to correct the poor spelling/grammar - this is a very minor edit, but I personally would approve the changes as it substantially improves readability (or at least reduces my blood pressure).
