I went to edit one of my answers on Stack Overflow and am getting a reproduceable issue with the text editor truncating the text in my answer.

Basically all I am doing to reproduce this is adding two periods, so I tried to use the text S.O. instead of SO but it truncates that line and leaves only O. out of the whole sentence.

Here are two screenshots, one is before editing:

And after editing:

Here is the answer I posted:

Hello and welcome to SO

(I cheated and used Google but amended the info according to your question.)

See Should 'Hi', 'thanks', taglines, and salutations be removed from posts?

As stated in this answer, some salutations like that are automatically removed, which I'm guessing is what happened since it was removed up to the first period.

I'm not sure why it was only removed after adding the punctuation but regardless, it should be removed.

  • Fair enough, thanks. But it does indeed have an odd way of doing so :s – Craig van Tonder Dec 22 '16 at 8:09
