I'll start off by saying; "This is not a rant".

It has come to my attention that a great deal of anno's are plagued with spelling misteks, from the minor to the disgustingly major. Why not auto-check submitted anno's for misteaks and revert them for review. Giving a chance of correction before posting and scrutiny can occur.

This may help alleviate some of the hostility felt by people who do make genuine mistaks in their spelling, and are later corrected by the PP.

Not sure which dictionary to auto-check with though. Personally I'd go for *PROPER* English, not this new-fangled US English....

(not sure about Category, related corrections welcome.)

Note rule 13 [krelnik, Oct 05 2004]

       Standard anti-spellchecker blah blah. If you're going to use the language, learn how to spell it.

       To be fair, it would be helpful if you frequently access the bakery via a PDA, which has very restricted spellchecking facilities (especially for technical vocabulary) and a tricky interface.

       [silverstormer] You're relatively new here, but I sense a spark in your postings that bodes well. I think you just need a few pointers in the right direction, see my link for details. I think you ran afoul of what I call rule 13 here, and your other posts may have run up against other ones. I hope it is helpful to you.   

       Welcome to the bakery and better luck with your future posts.

       [bliss] thanks for the link, it doesn't justify comment.

       [krelnik] I have actually been an avid reader of the HB for some time. Only recently have I decided to take a stab at invention. Thanks for your support and critique, will continue to persue that HB dream of perfectly risen pastries....

       Just remember Rule #1: ignore everything krelnik says.

       Do I surmise that you are still ticked that I didn't like your Sonogram idea dalek?
krelnik, Mar 12 2003
  

       Nope, [krel] you just don't get it? do ya?
The Kat, Mar 12 2003
  

       Care to explain it for me?
