Once upon a time, back when Ray still roamed the backyard of a legendary NT QB, one word was more offensive than all others around GMG.com. That word is included in the word "quite".  It was determined that no NT player could be called by this abomination of a word, regardless of how that player left the program.  I myself, even succumbed to this malpractice (Vizza absolutely was one).
So the powers that be (ahem: @Cerebus) decided to implement a text replacement for whenever this word was typed.  In it's stead, "Transfer" would be substituted.
However, the board's software was unable to parse other words that might contain that specific sequence of letters, and would simply replace those 4 letters no matter when they appeared.   This obviously led to much confusion when using the word "quite".  And we all had hearty laughs.   If you hover over "quite", you'll see why it would be funny when thinking on how the AKA word would sit in the middle of a sentence.

Like an old episode of Paul Harvey's "The Rest of the Story". Thank you!!
