Very Strange

Under my creative writing post on Voss, I encountered a strange experience perhaps someone can make sense of it

I posted an aphorism by Thomas Mann and it goes like this:

A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult then for other men

If I review it before logging off, the phrase reads like this: A writer is looking for a more difficult man. But if I log off and then read it, it reverts to the originally intended phrase.

I wonder if there is some kind of explanation for this occurance.

Perhaps you have some plugin that replaces text in web pages? I know several exist.

It's not "very strange".

You have been drunk again.

I like the aphorism.
Many explanations of unexplainable things look like this.

Yes I drink but I've never been drunk. But I'm beginning to understand. By 'drunk' I mean a kind of lost weekend kind of experience.

But I have lost some memory, on account of it, granted.
