Not just here but most other places. It seems like the spell checkers have gone full retard, everywhere, and somebody did it. For example, I just typo'd the word "be" spelling it "ne". The spell checker wants to change it to NE or en or Ne. And with the word "or" typo'd as "ot", it wants to change it to "OT", "to" or "it". Now I realized the typos are my fault but it used to be the spell checkers worked a lot better. So, how many two letter words end with "e"? Here they are according to one website.

And how many two letter words end with "r"? According this site there are four, and the retard spell checker cannot figure that out. Any one else notice this?

I keep complaining about the spellchecker here but so far no one has fixed it. For me, it doesn't even recognize typos and misspelled words and you have to play games with it, usually posting then reopening the post (edit) 3-4 times to catch all the typos! One time it flags whole lines or paragraphs as "typos" when nothing is wrong then slowly, it begins to find bad words each time you reopen it.

When I was in school, I actually had teachers that taught, and I actually learned.
That being said, I have my "spell checkers" turned off on my pc and my phone.
I only use them when needed for words I'm unsure of, or that are complicated to spell.

But yes..........I have a friend whose spell correct/checker on his phone has gone completely psycho.
He will text me something like "I had to go to the store", and what I get is "I had to bliff the dore".

Even though I have my spell checks and correctors turned OFF on my phone, they still fuck up my texts, and Im having to constantly delete and retype!!!

Spell checks capability is that it can take "established" words in the English language and correct an individuals misspelling of that established English word. What it can't do is to properly correct words that don't exist in the English language, such as "ne," as it will scan its database and fail to be able to find the correct word. HOWEVER, in the case of the letters, ne, it probably saw the way our states are abbreviated and subsequently determined that you were trying to enter the abbreviation for Nebraska (NE or Ne).
No "spellcheck" system can anticipate what humans intend to type onto a page and no "spellcheck" is perfect, just as people aren't perfect.

I will call that hand Miketx and raise you 20 bits:) Not only are phone and computer spell checkers often invalid (my phone could drive me nuts if I allowed it to do so with useless microphone feature unable to understand plain English) but notice how basic English rules are no longer applicable.

National networks (most of them, most likely) are airing movies/series/live coverage with almost everyone using the word 'me' for I, and 'him' for he...etc. This is going to lead to changes in grammar, as has happened with using "sus" for suspicious and various abbreviated words because it's easier...lazier....you see my point.

A common example is saying "Me and him" instead of he and I, and I guess for those who attempt to politely place the other person first say "Him and me" lol this is the new standard of informal English and it's all over the place.

Spellcheckers are the bane of our internet universe. We just have to suffer.
