Excellent suggestion !

Speaking of suggestions, I think Bob Stewart and AR managemnt should put out a request for members to send in words they think should be added to the ActiveRain dictionary since individual members cannot (and with good reason) add words themselves.

Let's bring our ActiveRain dictionary into the 21st century !

Michael,

I just ignore.  The spell check is weird in each platform.  Our web site likes some words that Word does not...My Scrabble dictionary does not like words that are in the dictionary...it is PC thing I think.  A

And yet they don't catch it when your i is not I as it should be... not sure why they don't have automatic spell-check on everything...

There are a few others that I keep waiting for them to recognize, like, Repost, Realtor, and a few others that I cant remember at the moment.

until then I will patiently ignore the red underlines

Well there are many words I use that get underlined with the spellchecker. I ignore some of them and change others even knowing I am right and it is wrong.
