3. for people without spellcheck built into their browsers...

There's a site-side spellcheck feature. Apparently "Obama" is not in the dictionary.

2. Spell check won't help when you misspell "one" as "on".

11. From your post, positive campaigning isn't something you're into.
My OP was a nice one, use the toilet next time you want to take a dump.

23. Now I've seen everything.
Does there exist a post innocuous enough that some Obama supporter won't swoop in and start swinging fists? They ought to be glad someone was thoughtful enough to care about this.

16. O bama? What does that mean? Why would it change to that, I wonder.
glad you got a response. I love my spellcheck (and my easy to use dictionary).

Hey, am I misspelling spellcheck? It's got a red line under it. What gives?
