Does anybody else use google for spell check when posting?

I was just wondering if I was the only one.

I do it. I admit to not being a great speller.

Nothing to be ashamed of.

I do it too, I also keep Dictionary.com handy for those fancy posts. Sometimes I think of words, and then get confused on their meaning.

google has a spell check? i use it for dictionary definitions for when i'm afraid that i'm using a term out of context. like 'exponentially'.

Meh. I take typos like a man. And I never spellcheck for anything as unimportant as a forum. I only use a dictionary to actually quote definitions in a dispute, and I never use a thesaurus for this (though I do sometimes for my writing or for my uni stuff, which isn't a bad thing).

microsoft word thesaurus for essay writing, so that i don't use the same term that's in the rubric about 5 times in the one paragraph.

I'm glad someone stands up for spelling on the internet, but too many hours talking to Narg on IRC has made me not care anymore. He can't fucking spell :P

I use google for spell checking and occasionally dictionary.com to double check the context of some words.

Nope. Idiot savant when it comes to spelling.

No. I am a good speller. Anyway, I use a simple form of lexis, so I never really have to think.

i don't have an issue with spelling (usually) but my grammar goes on walk about constantly. i blame it on my increasing use of colloquialisms.

I blame it on the Aussie schooling system <flees>.

well at first i was ready to defend it, but then i realised that they really didn't put a great enough emphasis on grammar in primary school. but i think the system's changed since i was in primary.

Kids these days :dontknowa

I was JOKING silly :p We don't need a long essay on how great the Australian educational system is (although I'm sure Fox will miraculously claim to have a great aunt from Australia who taught her all about the Australian educational system and give us a thorough thesis explaining why I'm wrong).

fox is a she?

i wouldn't really say that my grammar is atrocious, but i do tend to get lost when writing paragraph-long sentences. jesus, i spent 3 min telling this fob in my class that it was "did you have it already?" not "did you had it already?". i really hate her.

Oh just fuck her and get it over with, you know you want to.

Unless the other girl is a lesbian, I think that's not an option. Australia's public schooling system is shit because of education funding cuts. Hm... there goes my Liberal-funding bashing message.

True story...the man is fucking awesome. Freak...you're an example to all non-native English speakers...oh...and to all of you guys out there...just try with the English...we really don't bite and you'll find most of us only berate native English speakers about their English (like Keria) but only cos it's fun ;)

And who says KKW isn't educational?!
