    I know most of us post fast and without carefull review, but I and I am sure many would love a quick spell check function.

    Oh no, the english majors are coming out of their tree. Was it a post from Brad "Buttuz" ?

    some suggestions...
    * Copy paste your writings in Word or your favorite editor and run spell check

    * Buy a dictionary and look up the words

    I don't know what to think, here is the worlds most recognized Ferrari forum and the members are just being human.

    Go to ispell.com, and get a spell checker. We've been there on this, but we've forgotten the site. I'm too lazy most of the time to use it.

    The lack of a spellchecker provides lots of entertainment here.

    If you use the Firefox browser then you can get the Spellbound extension. I think spellbound.com

    The downfall of the English language is an atrocity... i see misspelled words and grammatical errors all the time, in print, in advertisements, on television, etcetera... It's astounding the way mistakes are made with words like then/than and anything plural with an 'apostrophe, ess'...

    ...of course, this all coming from a guy who uses ellipses at the end of every one of his sentences... :)

    ^ lol

    I think people should just LEARN ENGLISH instead of depending on spell checkers. I haven't used one since 3rd grade. :p

    Spell check is great even if your a good speller. I type with five, maybe six, fingers and I can type "yuo" instead of "you " just buy hitting the keys incorrectly and spell check picks this stuff up so that I can type quicker and not worry about it.
