How about, rather than relying on spell checkers, people actually learn to spell. Second (third, forth, etc.) languages not withstanding, of course.

It's a novel idea, and one they implemented back when I was in grade school (in America if you can believe it). Of course, computers weren't powerful enough to check spelling back then. Even now I refuse to have my computer do things my brain is perfectly capable of. I really wish others would do the same :P

Kidding BTW. I could care less if others want to be ignorant and make up for it with external processing power. Means less competition in the real world for me.

PPS. Hope I didn't spell anything wrong in there :P

Spell Checkers can be a useful tool if used in conjunction with a working brain. ;)

fourth ;).

Amyways, a spellcheck seems completely useless as a packaged featured, and to see that the people here would brush the idea so easily tells me that this project is heading into a relatively good direction.

i just have to say, even though this is refering to the 1st post:

i failed Computer sciences with a 30% average, and i had one of the lowest averages in High School and yet, the UCP is easy enough for me (then again, failing a Canadian High school might be like getting Honors in an American one, cuz i'm by no means an Idiot)

oh, and the supreme court has ruled COPPA unconstitutional, you can take that out of the registration process, admin settings, and usergroups ;)

I say its just a bit messy right now. Also, I'm testing it and it simply takes getting used to. At first for me, I could not get the permissions system, but after a few experimants, I'm a pro!

P.S.- Its nothing like IPB.
