When I view the site on my MacBook or iPhone, what people typed as apostrophes often look like a question mark. Is this happening to anyone else?

I have reached out to the administrator many times but he has not replied. In the meantime, I suggest we try to avoid using contractions to limit the apostrophes.

Happening for me with quotation marks as well, that they are coming up as question marks.

Anyone else having this issue?

The message above shows up for me as question marks, not as apostrophe or quote. What about you?

Are you using Mac or PC?

Today: my post from yesterday shows up like it should, but drinkanddestroy's shows up as two question marks.  This is way beyond my pay grade....

It depends on what device/browser the message was posted from, not what device the reader is using.

My messages are mostly either posted from an iPhone on safari, or a MacBook on firefox.
On rare occasions I post something from work, which is a PC with firefox
