    there are also various spellcheckers for I.E. (i believe FireFox has one built in)...such as the Google toolbar..the spellchecker with the toolbar hasn't let me down yet (when i remember to use it)

    Finally someone thinks of this. I am tired of grammatically incorrect and mispelled comments.

    Hey, thanks! Sometimes our links and buttons aren't so obvious! Once you post a comment, you have 15 minutes to delete it. In some projects, the comments become an extremely useful place for information, design, and review of the project. We didn't want people deleting comments in response to later comments because it's potentially confusing. Plus, it's useful for someone learning to see the entire exchange. The vast majority of users on the site are mature enough to work with this system. If another user proves them incorrect, they'll post a comment admitting their mistake and thanking the community for presenting the best information. This does have the unintended consequence of setting typos and misspelling in stone. We're working on a preview function and the ability to edit rather than delete comments for 15 minutes.
