    I've seen it suggest the wrong form of their and there even though I am a master at those. Like, "We went to their home" and it wants to replace "their" with "there." How strange is that?

    We all run into funny spell check and grammar errors. I compose and type very fast, but not with the greatest keyboard accuracy. Sometimes the checkers do me a favor, and sometimes they're worse than the original typo would have been.

    I don't like to spend a lot of time proofing my stuff, and submit it after the last word is written. A habit I learned in the old AOL live chat rooms. But afterwards I see all the mistakes, and have to keep going back for running edits. icon_redface.gif

    I am whit you on that, especially if it is a 10 page research paper. I like to edit as I go. I hate writing stuff and then having all those green signs show up. I now use a program called Ginger. It is a lot more proficient.
