    It would be cool to have a spell check feature that people could use before pressing the submit button. (like an email program has) I am assuming that would be too resource intensive or it would already exist - but on the off chance that nobody has ever thought of it I thought I'd toss it in the suggestion box. Some people really need it (especially when English is often a 2nd language)

    This would be a good idea, mac users can gloat, they have system wide spell check :) so it's not an issue for me, but others would probably appreciate it.

    however, I think that spell check makes you a worse speller if you take it for granted, if you assume you'll always have it available and get lazy, then you won't learn these things, but I think if you make it a point to learn a word you misspell, even with the aide of spellcheck, then more power(and spelling bees) to you :)

    Actually, I find it to be the opposite of this!!

    Most poor spellers are kids who have spoken english all their lives!!
