[Migrated] Provide a separate checkbox for "Incorrect phrases" during Regex typo fixing
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Per a discussion at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia talk:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos#"Passed away", I think it would be a good idea to provide a separate checkbox after enabling Regex typo fixing called "Fix incorrect phrases" and if not checked, ignore section https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:AutoWikiBrowser/Typos#Incorrect phrases. This would give the users an additional mental prompt that they will be looking for stylistic changes to phrases as well as simple typos. @Xeno 01:17, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

Fronds ofc does something like this.. Its whether you wanted the audit trail and it kept onwiki.

Well there's some disagreement as to whether phrases should be included with typo fixing. I'm leaning towards the no side, but some people like them. So I figured the best of both worlds could be included with a further check box. I would say suggest default to off.

FYI, someone at the discussion was concerned that Fronds was in its infancy and thus wouldn't be as effective as it being built into the typo matrix.

Admittedly so (think "Who bought the first telephone?").
