Have you reported this to Staff? http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/ April 23, 2011 at 6:28 pm #603014 rookieblitzMember Thank you, I just did April 23, 2011 at 6:34 pm #603016 timethiefMember May I suggest that many browser these days do have a spellcheck function. I use Firefox so when afterthedeadline is offline I simply use it. April 23, 2011 at 7:01 pm #603018 thesacredpathStaff If you want to use the one in your browser, check your preferences (not sure where you will find it in your browser) and set it to check spelling as you type. It is much more convenient in my opinion. April 23, 2011 at 7:01 pm #603019 thesacredpathStaff G’day TT!

April 23, 2011 at 8:16 pm #603034 timethiefMember @momgog I’m using Firefox 3.6.16 with a spellchecker built in to it. If you are using IE then maybe you should download it and use it as a backup browser for times like these.
