It might be about the same as whitesplaining, which word does appear on the site.  Potentially could have broader application, though.

While I disabled smart quotes in Apple Mail 9.2 and make plain text before sending I still have a problem with apostrophes and quotes appearing after posted to the list as code.  How do I fix that?
