    How about Spell Check?

    Not sure if this is where I should post this thread....but we need to have a spell check option.....everyone agree?

    Driving me nuts how a lot of posters either can't spell (or can't type)!

    No offense to anyone, of course....

    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    Oh, wolfy, I love you for this. And I think it's long past time.

    I agree. Though I am one of many guilty of misspelling. I try to find the mistakes and correct them though. But spell check would be nice

    I've quit reading numerous well thought out and pertinent posts because of the poor spelling. Don't know what could be done about the grammar.

    When I'm writing a thread or post I often use Word Perfect or MicroSoft Works to compose it, spell check it and then cut and past into MiceChat. This has been suggested numerous times in here but people don't want to take the time to do it.

    I completely agree...our Lord Walt did not give us a brain only to end up being like the scarecrow in the upcoming TV Parable "Wizard of OZ". Our Lord Walt hath bestowed upon us a brain to use for His glory. For His is the Magic Kingdom, and all the powers of imagination, and the glorious Tinkerbell forever and ever...Amen! Can I get a Waltellujah?!??!

    I never thought of that DD, I admit to being very guilty of bad spelling on occasion, although I do try to go back and fix blatant mistakes when I see them. I apologize if my spelling has soured some towards reading my overabundance of postings.

    I will take your suggestion next time

    Trust me my dear...you are the LAST one we need to worry about. You may be one of the smartest people on here(as far as I can tell from your posts)!

    I do that sometimes too. It just depends on what I am posting. For example I am not doing it here. But if I do tend to write a lot I will fix it. I try my best but I don't think any of us are perfect. Some sort of checker would be nice, but then that probably includes more stuff to increase bandwidth. So for now I guess we'll just copy/paste? (ctrl-c, ctrl-v or apple-c, apple-v)

    Thanks DQ but you'd be one of the last people I had in mind when I wrote my previous post in here.

    You need to be on top of these things Club 33! Don't worry though, with practice, your wit will be as quick as mine one day, but I doubt it.

    Post

    People post here for fun. There are many other Disney sites that have killed themselves by forcing members to conform to their tough standards. Many of you are here as a result of that. We aren't going to start making people feel bad about something as trivial as mis-spellings. Although, It would be helpful if some of you did install a spell checker to your browser. I use one called SpellBound for Firefox. It is free and works well.

    Hope this helps.
