'''STOP!''' Bots cannot reliably detect quotes! Your bot messed up [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Inch&diff=prev&oldid=475226511 AGAIN! You must manually inspect every spelling change to see if it is within a quote. This is your '''final warning'''. The next time, I seek to have your bot approval revoked.

::: Thank you, after quite a while attempting to do this somewhat decently, I'm *painfully* aware that bots can't reliably detect quoted text in wiki markup. There are a couple of rules of thumb, and a few obvious cases, but in general it's not easy. Alas, humans, while better, aren't always great at it either.
 
::: Contrary to what you said, I do inspect, and always have inspected every change my bot makes, but I'm afraid sometimes I do mess up, and I welcome correction on this, even if it's only to prompt me to stop for the night because I'm getting unreliable/paying insufficient attention. Also, if I've made a systematic error that can be readily identified, I go back and fix them up.
 
::: However please stop with the authoritarian tone of voice. I have to say I was really annoyed by your 'final warning', especially since it was for a second 'offence'. I'm a volunteer making a good faith effort and it makes me considerably less inclined to want to continue if I have to field this sort of comment.
 
::: Anyhow, apart from that, thanks for the feedback. I will try to watch out more carefully for quoted text--I'm kinda surprised I was caught by 'mariage' because it's one of those annoying words that shows up now and then where the correct French spelling is incorrect (modern) English spelling.
