    I found a WP plug-in that offers more than just spell checking. The blog that I contribute to allows me to select what I want the plug-in to do. The following are the options it offers:
    Bias Language
    Clich├ęs
    Complex Phrases
    Diacritical Marks
    Double Negatives
    Hidden Verbs
    Jargon
    Passive Voice
    Phrases to Avoid
    Redundant Phrases

    I know HP doesn't use WordPress, but it would be cool to have something like this. If HubPages is interested in learning more about this plug-in errr technology, the following url explains it more:

    Just thought this would be cool and helpful for hubbers.

      Very useful for hubbing -- absolutely!
      But please don't suggest using such a useful tool in the forums --
      How could we have discussions without bias language, cliches, jargon and (my personal favorite)redundant phrases!!!
      lol

          Oh good. Half the fun of forums is the butchering of the language smile.
