Southern Hemisphere Co-ordinates

I've only recently started Waymarking in earnest & am enjoying it however it irks me that I need to continuously edit my listing to account for my geographical location. Progressing to submission of the Waymark invariably requires an edit to change the co-ords that have reverted to N & W. Editing doesn't guarantee acceptance so I may need to do that again. If I need to edit the text then in 99% of the occasions I will need to do another edit to change the co-ords. This is frustrating & adds considerably to the time it takes to finalize a Waymark.
Do I just have to grin & bear it or will Groundspeak tweak their system to recognise us southern cousins?
(I did a search to see if this has been discussed before however the search just took me to the general geocaching forums).

I've tried all different routines to avoid it, but it seems so random that I can't reproduce any pattern, so there is no "work around" that I know of.

I will be a little bit parochial now - please bear with me. Tuena would know of the Iriquois helicopter on the pole just on the left hand side of the highway as you cross the Shoalhaven River going south. This is a listed waymark and one time it decided to disappear from the local area waymarks. I eventually tracked it down to somewhere between California and Hawaii in the middle of the ocean after both S and E coords switched to N and W . This was well after it had been successfully listed!
