    The spelling checker with Firefox is fantastic, 'cause my spelling is normally pretty dreadful. of course I use it, although I don't use any kind of grammar checker.

    I don't use it, generally because I don't use long words that I wouldn't know how to spell :p:

    no I don't - this is why I lack in capital letters all the time lol

    (I type with one hand due to always having Alex on my knee, so I get slack with capitals).

    No, I am quite confident my spelling is alright. And if it isn't I can at least say it's not my fault, English isn't my mother tongue
    Agreed.

    Apart from the mother tongue bit :p:

    No, I don't use a spellchecker. My spelling is good. The only mistakes I make are typos where I miss spaces and stuff, because I'm typing on a laptop at a funny angle. I normally go back and check I haven't done that though.

    It was scary when in exams I would write a word, move my pen and in my head I'd wait to see if a little red line came underneath - i wasn't *totally* crazy - it was just habit that my mind would spell a word - pause and wait for verification through a red squiggle.

    *shudder*
    Hahaha, me too. It's weird. I also often want to press Ctrl+F to find parts of essays that I want to check over.

    use a grammar/spell checker?

    I mean the ones that are built within the actual web-browser i.e. Firefox.

    Do you think this is a valid and legitimate way? Do you think this is fair?

    Discuss :yep:.

    If I've made a mistake/haven't included something I meant to, then I just edit it after I've posted.
    Spellchecking takes too long.

    Nope, I never do. Too bloody lazy, and even though my spelling and grammar isn't 100%, I don't think it's that bad.

    'Fair'? 'Valid and legitimate'? All I want to do is post on a forum, not take part in some crazy competition against an unforeseen spelling governing body.
