Mr Red BS: Micro$oft shapes genetics !!!! (11) BS: Micro$oft shapes genetics !!!! 11 Aug 20

Not exactly a gotcha.

Sometimes itís easier to rewrite genetics than update Excel

Basically the story is that Excel can read genes as a date. So it is easier to change the (internationally recognised) name of a gene than to stop Excel automatically seeing anything (free form) as a date and insisting on formatting/changing it thus.

A small but visible reminder how AI can get it wrong, except this was a human decision, long established.
