    Are you looking at the Icon: line that has the thumbs up and down illustration? Under that is the title of this thread under that is a larger box that starts with B I U. look at the third row down for the smiley face then the ABC if you don't see any of that .............. we tried.

    Giordano, In the box we have 3 lines. a smiling face & Omega, printer, and other enigmatics, screen, but no spell/abc. getting to you via apple and google chrome.

    will continue to work by shooting first and asking spelling questions later.

    The apple products spell check as you type, sometimes with hilarious results.

  • prologos

    jgnat, yes, in many languages, but that humour is not available, not tranfered on our posting choices here.

    may be it is an apple and not an apognophos thing.

    we need apple products like Cider on this site.

    Apognophos: I just obsessively re-read everything before I post it, because I'm OCD like that.

    OK, since you admitted it, I will, too. I also am OCD in the way you mentioned. I've noticed the "athiest" thing, too. Actually, though I'm more OCD about grammar and logic than I am spelling.

    In this technological age of txting, accurate spelling is highly overrated and on its way to becoming obsolete. Who reads the letters in words anyway? I only see word shapes. Just make sure your word has the right shape. That's all that counts. Athiest and Atheist have almost identical shapes. Unless you're righting () writing a resume or some other important formal document, don't sweat it.

    "Its a shame about our spelling. Our brain and it's failure to get things straight."

    Hey! You got your itses mixed up. The above should be "It's a shame...and its failure..."
