Make it mandatory for everyone on PBN to have Google Toolbar...

[rant] As some of you may know, the Google Toolbar has a nifty little spell check feature. One of the biggest problems in PBN (more specifically ST..) is the lack of literacy. When you see people spelling spare, spear, and sponsor sponcer, it doesn't really help your IQ. The google toolbar can solve this problem!!
It kind of sucks when you struggle to read a post because the spelling is so horrible, and frankly, it is effecting my intelagince ()

Tl;Dr, Google Toolbar+illiterate posters=LEGIBLE THREADS!!

I've never seen Mister spelled M1sTa. Maybe this little toolbar you speak of could fix that.

I don't need help with my spelling. Plus, I wouldn't download it because I like my browser to be CLEAN.

Well what about people who can spell? It would just be unnecessary. The reason people (imo) have such bad grammar is because the internet is the only place to vent it out, since you can't do it at school. Also, there is a thing called freedom of speech.

LOL. Thanks for noticing that i really do check out the TTM/A and the suggestion box. I cant Close or edit anything in here though, im pretty much just an ST mod.

I personally think that a spell check would be awsome. There are times when im sitting here just drawing a blank about the words im trying to type correctly.

Dictionary.com has a wonderful search feature that's incredibly easy to access if you're using firefox.

Tool bar is taking it too far. The spelling here (and everywhere else on the internet) is horrible. I understand the occasional mistake, but when its every other word it makes it almost impossible to understand. I blame the schools for lack of spelling and grammer (even for my own). And I blame lazyness on the user who doesent take the time to fix or find out how it is spelled. You would think with the amount of typing that we do these days on the internet that our spelling/grammer would be that much better, but it actually has gotten worse. It doesent help that 95% of these people hiding behind their screen think they are l33t haxor5 or strait gangsta playas. On another note, with the amount of change in the english language over the last 20 years, can there be a change in the spelling of words?

It's not the schools fault. Text and instant messaging have destroyed correct spelling and grammar.

I don't see this happening (for many reasons) from a performance aspect. Think about how much the servers have to process and notice what happens when it is over burdened with requests. Just think about the servers having to check the spelling of every single word from every single member from every single post.*

I just say we ban the illiterate idiots. We can't read their posts anyways so what good are they?
