Most do, and that is the problem. Why is it that everyone is so comfortable looking uneducated and foolish? (Especially when EVERY computer is equipped with the ability to correct your spelling.)

I guess when it comes to this specific conversation though, it doesn't matter what my opinion is. All that matters is, we all have rules to follow on the Café, and if we don't like them, we can leave.

If it wasn't for Google Chrome I would make so many spelling errors. :-D
To bad there isn't a grammar checker though, that would help.

I've always been a good speller. Most of my misspellings are because of, not despite of auto-spelling correction.

Why not add the improper use of grammar if there is so much concern about spelling? Lets nit pick. (sarcasm)

Thanks, Mike. Great suggestion.

I'll let you in on a little program (free) that I use that will eliminate the cut and paste steps. It's an IE spell checker that is, basically, a small utility program that can check the spelling of anything being typed in Internet-based programs, such as the Magic Café.

Here is the link:

Just download the small (1.96 MB) file and follow the directions.

Once installed, after typing something, just "right click" with your cursor in the text block and select "check spelling." The program will then let you know if everything is OK and, if not, let you replace whatever is wrong with the corrections - just like any other spell checker.

I have been using this little program for years. The price is right (FREE), it is small, taking up very little space on my hard drive, and is really easy to use (again, just a right click with the mouse).

Hope this helps. Mark. Smile

Ohh hey! This helped me a lot too. Thanks!

Use Grammarly to check Grammar. But, you can't always trust a software.

Trust your instincts Smile

I'm so old, I proof read what I write. But my thinking is, if I am not willing to read it; should I really offer it to somebody else to read.

But the old ways are fading out. Such as being five minutes early for appointments.

(Praying I didn't make any mistakes in this post.)
Have a Magical Day!

I really didn't know how to explain it.
So I told them the truth, and they fell for it!
