Each lunch hour, as a break from global technology development, I review the Town Square Forum to enjoy commentary from our communities. As authors write their comments, I note that they do not have the ability for Spell Check that would catch the misplaced or misspelled words.
As I notice copy-and-paste postings from e-chains to your forum, all the original misplaced and misspelled words are left in place. Is it possible to give authors spell check capabilities?
One additional help would be making up "member" names. You might have a glossary they could access that would offer click-on accesses to first and last names. I will gladly offer "Whip Baker, the All-American Spud, The American White Potato Society" for those that have difficulty with psuedonyms.
Thank you for the FORUM!

Me in words thinking as us can do would make understandable when spelling was ordered in order.

I am often surprised when I find a very unique individual among Danville residents that has a sense of humor. They are very rare!
Member, in great humor, celebrated the humor created by the lack of spell check, but did not consider what humor could be created by spell check. When you spell check Piepho, the word is changed to Peephole.
Throughout my commercial life, I have been an author and contributing editor for trade magazines. In a test to see if anyone was reading my research and results, I would insert one or more "errors." I was often pleased that readers would respond to correct the errors and add further information to the results.
TDW created this Forum with similar purpose of interactivity. We should appreciate the ability to share humor, and our thoughts, among all cultures in our region including a less-than-humorous Danville.
Thanks for participating,
