      Description

      Dear sir or madam. Please consider my submission for the most pedantic bug ever reported.

      The sixth word in the loremipsum macro should be "consectetur", not "consectetuer", which is a word not found in Cicero ... or Latin.

      Thank you very much.

        Dear Fred

        Thanks for raising this issue. Congratulations. You win. As much as I should close this out as won't fix I just can't bring myself to do so. I don't know which is more worrying the fact that you found the issue or the fact that I want to see it fixed.

        Regards

        Hi,

        I'm not sure if this bug is a joke, and I'm not sure how serious Steve's reply is. But I'm just Type A enough that I have to add my two cents: The text of 'lorem ipsum' is already garbled Latin. The first word 'lorem', for example, is 'dolorem' in Cicero's text. (And 'lorem' is not a word at all.) So, on the one hand, you could edit the word so that it matches the canonical version of 'lorem ipsum', but I wouldn't worry much about making it be a real word found in Cicero (or Latin).

        See here for more on the history of the dummy text: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorem_ipsum#History_and_discovery.

        Thanks.

        One of the most pedantic bugs, definitely. In most of the cases, these types of bugs go to won't fix
