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?

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.
