32. Because spell check does not flag incorrect WORDS, only incorrect spelling.

Before my mother retired as assistant editor of a newspaper, she was amazed at the number of people there who could not use proper punctuation, grammar and spelling. Most of them had degrees in Journalism. English isn't even my mother's native language and she had a better grasp than the people that worked there.
