Default Spelz chek?

It would be cool if there was a spell check for the title of threads. Or at least if a mod see's the abuse of the english language they could simply correct it. Not only does it make us look like a stupid bunch of painters but it is very hard to take anyone serious that cant spell estimate or image .....or is it "to imagine you are busy".... correctly.

Make it a law ....if you want to start a thread you need to spell it correctly.

I can handle some errors in the spelling and no doubt have been the offender in many threads. My problem is when the language is just butchered and you have to read the post a couple times to get what is trying to be expressed.

In the threads is fine ....I'm a big offender as well. I am just talking about the title of threads.

That movie was funny
Oh I misunderstood that you were talking about the title only. You would think that if people were unsure about a word for their title they would google it .

When in doubt I copy/paste into the reply area.

I use firefox for a browser and it spell checks pretty good.

seriously, I think I agree with NEPS more on this topic than anything else. Love my mac as it auto checks everything I type in every program pretty much. Makes me look like a smrt. And really, its part of being professional. If you let it slip here, you will let it slip with your clients.

it is about our personal time.. our time to unwind away from our customers. With "brothers" here is a quote from CT:
