What Odd Words Have You Found That DU's Spell Check Does Not Recognize?
Here are a few I've come across in my travels:

Blog
Blogger
Weblog
DUer
Freeper
Schaivo

I've seen tons of others while hanging out. Most escape me at the moment. Have you found any that were a surprise to you?

10. My (non-DU) spell checker keeps trying to change Schiavo to Schizo.
Not sure what to think of that!

Seems...somehow...appropriate. ;)

12. You May Want To reconsider Your Place Of Employment!
Just what is done at a place with a cryptic name like "Fairland Data Center"? Are they a subsidiary of Halliburton by any chance?

15. If you can believe it, the word "proven".
Which of course means...established, confirmed, demonstrated, verified.

Mentioned it to admin. but they've ignored it.

16. That does seem a strange one.
Mods probably do not have control. May be inbedded in their software. Hard to say.
