  • SO ? It still does work and it is needed.....have you seen all the misspelled words and grammar errors here? The least we can expect is words spelled right,don't you think? ANd spellcheck does perform a function. It can't be that hard to use, can it?
    Idiots? ha.

  • Girl I had to bump you for this question. Do you know spell check actually tells me my name is spelled wrong?

  • I wonder who made it up... It does put up some crazy suggestions though. Don't feel bad Cheveyo1 -- it tells me my maiden name and my married last names are both spelled wrong.

  • Yes, a useful tool, but sometimes the suggestions are not even in the ball park of what I am trying to spell, and heaven forbid you write things like LOL etc, it just goes crazy.
