    I am trying write this bit of a spintax but am having trouble. I got this to work so far but want to add alternative words to it.

    Working:
    '{would|should|could|dare} not'

    Not working:
    '{{would|should|could|dare} not|{wouldn't|shouldn't|couldn't}}'

    I want it to choice either this 'would not;should not; could not' or 'wouldn't;shouldn't;couldn't'

    Try this:

    {{would|should|could|dare} not|{wouldn't|shouldn't|couldn't}}

    Hmm. If I get rid of the pipe, it breaks the code anything after it.

    It looks the same with mine. Just w/o the quotes. I tried it anyways and it doesn't work.

    Ya I just tried it in that site and it does not work. I guess their spinner is garbage.

    Test it here:

    Thanks guys for the confirmation.

    I have now another issue. There are some comments I could delete a word and still make sense. It seems Follow Liker doesn't support this code. That is, any blank space between {} that doesn't have a character after it does not get parse as a space
    Ex:
    '.....{Does |Please |}{check|see} my account'

    Result:
    '.....Doescheck my account'; '....Pleasesee my account'

    The reason I wanted this way is because I may have a sentence before it that has a space. I don't want to have extra spaces if the bot doesn't choose a word between the first set of {}.

    Any way of coding it?

    There should be a character between "}{" instead of "{}", like this '......{Does|Pease} {check|see} my account'. Just make sure there is a space beteen two "{}"('{...} {...}'), there will be no such problem.

    The word should have been 'Do' and not 'Does', but that is not the point.

    I understand I need a space between the set of {} brackets, but when the bot doesn't choose 'do' or 'please', it will parse like this with 2 blank spaces.
    ex:
    'Great feed. {Do|Please|} {check|view} my account. '

    Result:
    'Great feed.<space><space>check my account or 'Great feed.<space><space>view my account'

    I want to have only one space before '<space>check my account.'
