They didn't bother to examine the San Francisco system font to identify why it happens with that particular font's ligatures, and not with any other font, or in other apps that either use different fonts, or use their own FreeType based text rendering.

It only happens with the one font? First I've heard of that, and it is very interesting indeed.

That is CENSORSHIP, you fascists!

Seriously, it is good that I can get away with bullshit like that here, because I was this close to posting some unicode in Youtube comments beneath iPhone reviews.

Google the character, you'll find hits for fake YouTube advice posts for Apple users, which would show up in searches for reviews or such.

There's also a lovely "Get off my board, Macfags" post on 4chan.
