All these places I type stuff at these days have this spell check shit that gives me a squiggly line if I spell something wrong.
Now that's all well and good but if they know that its wrong, they must know the correct way to spell the word.
WTF.
All it says to me is : "HEY FOOL! LOOK- YOUR WRONG!" and that's it.
Why doesn't it either tell me the correct way to spell it, or better yet spell it correctly for me. Sheesh.

Now, cuz (<SQUIGGLY!whats wrong with using CUZ for Christs sake!) I'm a nutcase, when I see the squiggly line I have to go to a dictionary site and look up the word cuz I don't wanna look like an idiot.
And I have to figure everyone but me knows how to spell the word and quietly laugh and smirk at Z the numbskull (< that gets a squiggly line---MUST -- FORCE -- SELF -- NOT -- TO -- LOOK -- UP.) Cuz its gotta be close. What is it? A silent K. Come on! Don't tell me its two separate words.
That's bullshit (< that's one word, so comeon already!)

I just realized this should be under my daily gripe. But this bothers me like every day.
WHY MUST I FEEL GUILTY ABOUT MISSPELLING WORDS!
Who really gives a shit?

Steve, of course, you can disregard this rant.

LOL! I always have to look up words if I don't think they're right.

There should be a way to turn that off in your browser, I think. I don't think it's a function of this place, but I'll check.

If you're using Firefox, try Tools > Options > Advanced and look under Browsing. Uncheck the box next to Check my spelling as I type. That might eradicate your irritation. Smile

they should have a 'context' check for all those double and triple ways of spelling a word ie. 'to', 'too', 'two'. That way when you inadvertently insert the wrong one in, it'll pop up and say, "you sure about that?" Neutral

Now that's funny.

In an irritating sort of way.

I try to think of the upside and figure I am learning, once again (cuz the early dayz of the innerwebs changed all spelling knowledge into "how can i get close to the right word as fast as possible"), how to spell correctly, and, if I'm not forced to look it up myself it won't stick.
But then I just copy and paste the correct spelling onto the post and I don't learn anything. So, whoever thought of this torturous method to get people spelling correctly again, it's not working.

Mrs H, I.E. Donna; is embarrased to come in here, because she is dyslexic. She can't spell shit (Literally, she can't spell 'shit')

I oversee all her "song-lyric" stuff, and everything else she does; including that gay-ass "facebook" stuff.

I say, FUCK IT!
Let yer mis-spelling shit fly!

YOU GO, you un-educated Yankees!
