Spell Checker


Posted by Webmaster , Jan 20,2002,19:52   Archive
The Spell Checker we were using was free - paid for by the banner ads which appeared when you used it. Well, there were no longer enough advertisers so there is no lomger a free spell checker. We would have to pay $150 per year to continue to have a built-in spell checker. For those of you who want to spell check your postings, I suggest you compose your message in your word processor, use its spell check and then paste the text into the Message box.

Why don't we all donate to the Spell Checker Fund?

Does anyone use it? I never do. It isn't too difficult to figure out what everyone is saying and to overlook the errors. Just a thought.

I routinely used it but have found that I don't actually miss it very much. And like Bob was saying there are other ways to use a spell check if one is so motivated. I'm not.

I'll get over my lack of spellcheck(basically, I think that I like to complain about things-in a loving way, though)
Sally, you mispelled Idaho. Alright, alright, don't hit me!

I really don't worry about others typos-just my own. Is it that perfectionist personality that some of us have?

Shirley, how dare you insinuate that I might not be perfect at all times! A perfectionist such as yourself would never have a friend who was prone to making errors.

Turn off your a/c. I'm sending you some of our chilly wind.

I've never used the spell checker (if I had I would have thought (wrongly) that it was part of my own software--what do I know! I just wing it and hope for the best as I can't look at a moving screen anyway.
