Ok I'm having trouble finding this in the help section on Facebook.
But how do you turn off having your name from auto filling when some one types it?

You know like if you begin typing the name of a friend and every one with the same first name shows up in a list.
EG: Jack Ass to Jack Shit

It can be really annoying if you hit enter by mistake.

I just had this happen to me and I would like to know the same answer. It's hard enough typing clear English sentences, but now that we have to worry about auto-filling, this is one more step is Facebook/Twitter ruining Grammar once and for all.
