Use spell check before you post your discussions or responses? I do every time.I'm not a big fan of reading discussions that are filled with spelling errors and grammatical errors either. It makes them hard to read and hard to understand. I've never understood why people don't just use spell check. Some of you Mylotters reading this might be saying...I don't see a spell check button, well folks that's cause there isn't a button for it. This is how you can spell check, not just on mylot but on any site in which you can submit text (such as forums) When your done typing find all the words with the little red wavy lines under them, click somewhere in the word that is misspelled and then right click. The spelling options for the word will come up, you find the correction to the word, click and presto..No spelling errors.

Well, I do not have a Spell check for anything here I do online, so most of the time, I will try and read over something I am typing on here just so that I do not have any spelling errors. Occassionally something does slip by here though. But when you see a lot of the discussions with mispelled words and such all of the time, it would be nice if it was included here. But since we have a lot of members here from all over the World, that could be one of the reasons they do not as well. All I can say, when they are too bad, it is a wonder they ever get any responses back to them as well.

The only way I'll do what you insist is when I can cut,copy and paste.Right now it'll just be a hassle to do.I uses the edit button that mylot provides sometimes I catch typos and other times I don't,matter of fact I started a discussion on this topic about 2 weeks ago asking mylotters did they think that mylot should reward us with spell check after 1000 or more posts I guess no one wants spell check because the discussion got zero responses.

Spell check isn't perfect though. If you use "your" instead of "you're" or mix up "there", "their" or "they're" it won't catch it. But I'm sure it's very useful to people who aren't that good at spelling. For myself, I don't use it because I'm a good speller. And I figure people will forgive me the occasional typo.
