If I were dictator of the world I would outlaw smart text selection. I'd lock up anyone who promotes it!

I really hate smart text selection. It always grabs stuff I don't want, such as the word before a punctuation mark when all I want is the punctuation mark. Or the punctuation mark after a word when what I want is the word.

How in hell do I get rid of this?
