Seriously, I'm getting tired of having to go back and re-read sentences to make some jumbled up words make any sense. Can we please implement a spell check?

Yes, a spell check would be good. Having to read a sentence over & over sucks. But it's more or less the authors reponsibility..

There is a major problem with the system. Spellcheck is on Firefox, and will alert you to mispelled words. But when you go back to edit them, Two things happen: one is you can only start your edit for 5 minutes; two if it takes you longer than five minutes to read and edit, the system doesn't allow it and your post just keeps the errors.
Another problem is computer keyboards. They cannot be adjusted for pressure, only for requisite duration of the key down to make it read.Again a system problem, I have tried to adjust that, but the selections on XP are just not selective enough. The first selection for longer is so long unless you type with one finger it would drive you crazy. I type roughly 100 words a minute with both hands, and the slightest twitch will add letters you don't intend.
The other thing is letters omitted. I frequently find that the initial letters are omitted, even though I feel sure that I did hit them as long as the others.
One more thing, I actually caught it today. Words that I am sure I typed being left out of the post. I selected EDIT and the word was shown in the edit window, but was NOT on the post. So that confirmed my suspicion that words are sometimes just left out of the post, that you actually put in it.
It is a continual pain in the ass, but what can you do. You can type your story on word,then paste it after you edit. That is the only solution that has been shown so far.
Anyway, enough, hope you weren't bored, or heard "More than I ever wanted to Know"!!

:) Hi Jen. I hope you are ok?
As a website designer or sorts for many years. I guess its natural that I write always in FrontPage2000.
It checks my spelling/makes suggestions as I go. ;)
