Small (or medium) sized electrodes in each key of the keyboard. As soon as spell checker realizes that a spelling mistake is occuring, a mild (or medium) shock is administered. A few taps of the backspace key, and a bit of thought will end the pain for you and your readers.

       I liked my shocking hat idea better. Also, spell-checkers don't know jargon.

       or my shocking pen... though, granted, nobody uses a pen anymore. [ ]... no, wait [+] for taser-level shocks.

       I did NOT see Stewie do this with the piano - I saw Daffy Duck do it with explosives instead of shocks though.

       I could use that. Does this place have spell check? I'd still be in trouble tho as there is still the grammer and punctuation to contend with.

       //abominable "US English" spelling?// Don't criticize; your judgment is dishonorable as it is likely to cause quarreling, not dialog, at our favorite website.

       ... and increasing levels of "are you sure ?" and "ARE YOU SURE?" with tense music, before zapping the hell out of the language abuser.

wot's that then, the "Half-Pedantry" ?

       Will it recognise [sic] "[sic]"? And will you sic the [sic]-seeking sucker on the sickened (sc. and sickening) whose only offense is that they forgot to modify the default localisation settings?

       You've a point [21Q]. I've developed an alphabet that has only 14 characters in order to reduce the redundancy that comes from hard/soft consonants. The only problem is that teddy bear and titty bar look the same spelled out...   

       Guess you'd need to read the context.
