LOL no, only on here. It irritates me to no end to keep on missing it.

Keeps happening to me too. Not a frequent word, but worth finding a fix, given the irritation:

"The lUcky mice licked up our lUscious lUnch. YUm, yUm, said the lUcky lUcha!"

"LArry the lArge duck was enamored of a laughing lArk. QuAck, quAck, said the lAcha to the lArk!"

Would I get docked a heart if I said "in front of him"? Don't they mean the same thing?

The only way to find out if you’d lose a heart is to try it. Roimhe could be in reference to either time or space — and “before him/it” would cover either possibility — but since this sentence has no context, either a time-based answer or a space-based answer should be treated as correct, so “in front of him/it” should be accepted. If it isn’t, report it as an error.

Just tested: "in front of him" is accepted as correct
