Let R = { x | x ∉ x }, then R ∈ R ⟺ R ∉ R... or is it?

Word count · 8:00pm Mar 19th, 2016

For a while, I have been wondering, why Fimfiction always seems to assign higher word count for my story chapters than my editor does. Today, I’ve done a few experiments and found the answer:
Fimfiction’s word count parser counts – that is, a single quote – as a word break character.
Which basically means that “I’m” or “don’t” both count as two words each, rather than one.
I hesitate to call that a bug, but I’m not sure this behavior is correct either.

Oy! I've been wondering this as well. :facehoof: Knighty should be told.


There's a certain chance he already knows and has to keep it this way anyway because established practice relies on this.
