Error: * Please correct spelling errors

Why am I getting this when trying to reply or make a new post? I have gone through the whole post and do not find any misspelled words. I even ran it through a spell checker and it only found some words like "dont" that needed the ' added in.... This surely couldn't have caused the problem. I thought that the site didnt allow certain curse words so I removed them even though they were not real bad.

It's a new feature:"Using English as a Second Language"

It's remedial but it is beneficial for the good of all readers!

Shouldn't that be "teachers everywhere love it"?

That's not a spelling error. That's a grammar error.

It would be better if it would at least tell you what is misspelled. Before it would highlight it in red so that you knew what was wrong. This really blows because I dont see any misspelled words and it will not let me post the message.

Can you post a screenshot of what you are trying to post when you have it in Preview? I don't know exactly how this works either, but we can make some guesses.

I found the problem. Had to paste sentence by sentence into until I found the culprit. I abbreviated the word "people" and it didnt like that I guess. It was shown as ppl, once corrected it was fine.

Funny thing is though it lets me type it here.

I think it is trying to eliminate abbreviations in rather short posts, not in all posts.

edit: I think it's a work-in-progress, also.

it's called irony, monkey.

by the way, "ppl" in that one post was caught by the filter.

it is not a spelling nazi algorithm.

You can mispell words jsut fine.

It is keeping the AOL slang in the AOL chat rooms because they are down right annoying.
