    Greetings from Earth Angel!! A few weeks ago I noticed the spell-check feature had disappeared on all of the active comment boxes within my Hubs, or when I'm commenting on anyone else's Hubs!! Am I having yet another "blonde moment" and it's right in front of me?? Blessings always, Earth Angel!!

    Hi EarthAngel,

    We removed it in the effort to speed up the web site.

    Most browsers include a spellchecker so we figured that it wasn't really needed.

    For example, if you use Firefox, all misspelled words get underlined in red.

      Um, Larry, isn't it time for you to GO HOME! Believe me, we'll all still be here tomorrow arguing about politics or religion or other assorted and sundry stuff. Go, relax, enjoy!

        Hopefully Larry has gone home for the day. Are you using Internet Explorer or Firefox as your browser?
