In Area 51, the description automatically begins with the word "For", and sometimes users, when writing the description of the proposal, do not realize this and write "for" again, resulting in "for for"....

  • Computers are supposed to make things easier for humans! It's far less effort to have the computer do it when relevant - at the point it's prefixed, just make it replace ^(?i:for )? with For and it solves the problem for everyone, instead of wasting time manually commenting and editing each time it happens.
