    Blunders won't happen again.

    I saw the following headline on Rediff.com:
    Blunders won't happen again, says Gurugram police.Why have they used " wouldn't " and not will not? I do get confused between will and would uses.

    Re: Wouldn't

    Jigneshbharati, I have had to enlarge the font on almost all your threads. Last night, I did the same and I wrote a post asking you to make sure you use a font large enough to be read on a smartphone and by people whose eyesight isn't what it used to be. Today's post was in a tiny font again! If you are using "copy and paste", please remove the formatting before posting. The font and font size I have used in this post are ideal for the forum.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I am really sorry. I use IPhone 5c but not good with technology. Could you please tell me what font size I should change to? 3 or 4 and which Font type?

    Arial 3 is good.

    Why have they used "wouldn't" and not "will not"? I do get confused between "will" and "would" usage.
    They haven't used "wouldn't" – they used "won't". The blunders will not happen again.

    Please note the correct use of inverted commas.

    I have changed your thread title. Your post has nothing to do with "wouldn't".
