I just learned something about adding interests

I just tried to add "Peter, Paul and Mary" to my interests and it came up as two different interests - "Peter" and "Paul and Mary" - because I had the comma in there. I didn't even think that the punctuation would make a difference. I've figured out that proper punctuation in the interest name will mess it up a bit...

That is interesting and will lead the rest of us to make sure there are no typo's when adding things to our interests group. An obstute assessment thank you for telling the rest of us so we will get it right if we run across this.

This had never happened to me before and I thought it was interesting. It's like I say all the time - you learn something new every day :)

I say this too, we must be related, lol. Really I say this and I also tell the children that just because we are adults doesn't mean we don't know everything, that we too must learn something new everyday. That is good when we do and that no one knows everything. Know matter how old we are we learn something new everyday. Well that's what I've said many times.

I knew that would happen in the tags, but I did not realize that it would affect interests or other aspects of mylotting. I guess we learn something new continually.

I didn't even think about it until it happened. Now I know to be a bit more careful.

Yeah, the comma will separate the phrase into two indivudual interest. It is a computer programming thing. For example if you wanted to add Paris, France as your interest you would drop the comma or your interests will be for both Paris and France, not isolated to only the city of Paris. Isn't technology great!
