An Appeal to myLot administration

Please permit me to make an appeal here to myLot administration. I sincerely believe in this site and its focus for the future. As such, we should all think of ways of presenting or thingking of something that can stand the test of time. I believe with time, this site can become a sort of information database for info-seekers. So, we need to have them in mind when we make presentations. In line with this, I would love to appeal to myLot administration to incorporate word editor/processor into this site. This would go a long way to help members post discussions/responses free of typos and unwarranted mistakes. Everyone of us here and me in particular make typo errors. With word editor/processor, members can endeavor to post something that is readable and understandable. The benefit of word editor/processor in site like this is innumerable. First, it will be possible for the admin to sensore postings and quickly detect ones that are abusive or offensive, incriminating and all in that manner. It will also help in proper formatting and so on. Agai, it will reduce the time spent by members trying to read through and make corrections. Sometimes, it is even difficult to see your own mistakes. With word editor/processor, you will be able to detect and make corrections. I doubt it if machine can detect any error when words are not spelt correctly. Now members, what have you to say on this?

They have tried to do that in a fashion by having the preview response button. If you think that your discussion response is free from problems, then you can just post it as per normal, but if you are not sure, preview it instead. I have asked myLot a few questions like this, and sometimes I will get the answer that they are looking into it, or that they have no plans to do it at this stage, but might consider it for later on. Other times, I get no response at all, whcih I think is extremely rude of them. Thanks for being one to think of these things. It is ' possible for the admin to censor postings' not 'possible for the admin to sensore postings'. Perhaps a spell checker would be great.
