wink Second Request: Speel check

I have requested this before...and of course I was let down by management.

BUT, now that love_u2_adam's posts are making my eyes bleed, I think it would be a fine time to try again.

How about a spell check function?

and now, for how it could be posted:

my browser has a built-in spellchecker so i wouldn't need this, but i think this is a fine idea

whether or not people would use said function though is another story. i'd certainly hope so, though.

New thought:

Repeated ignoring of the spell check function is grounds for immediate banning.



Holla.

btw, i checked vbulletin's site and from what i could see, it looks like it's not an option. although they may not list every feature on their site; elvis would of course know these things better than i would.

i of course wouldn't mind though banning people hoo typp liek dis!

We'll get spell check right after they start administering an IQ test for all new posters.

IQ tests would not help determine spelling acumen though.
