Why does the Instructables spellchecker dictionary not have the word "Instructable" added? Answered

Is it not worth the effort of modifying, or is there some inscrutable reasoning going on here?

It does, the I has to be capitalized though.

I don't think that the website has a spell-check, I pretty sure it's based on your computer : )

Yes, whenever you make a post, a button labeled Check Spelling is displayed. If it was made by someone other than Instructables, I don't see any credits, though I do see a GNU license for it.

Because it's misspelled. The correct English word is "instructible" (able to be instructed). I don't think I'bles has their own custom spell check.
