Minor grumbles about the letter U as a banned message.

I wish the abbreviation checker for the letter YOU would be turned off or give a way to override it when it is actually the technically correct term.(maybe allow it if it is in quotes)  I just had a third post that I was nailed by it.  One I was trying to explain how to build manometer for checking pressure differences(this one was years ago).  Another I was trying to explain how the neighbor was building livestock waterers and YOU was the shape I wished to express(about 2 years ago).  The post that it nailed me on today was expressing a YOU cross section shape.  I understand the desire to eliminate it as an improper abbreviation but there are times when it is the proper term.  If you leave it but give an override when giving the error message please give me the reminder of how to override.

C. Letellier, there is a work around option explained in this post. But it may be simpler to just use quotation marks.
