As I said,it's a long story,not just apathy,but while this thing is working,I am loathe to put it in a dumpster.
"loath" btw. That's one for the cognoscenti, since both "loathe" and "loath" are words.
Knew you'd appreciate it DR [8D]

So should I have used 'loath' or 'loathed',but not 'loathe'?
'Loathe' is a transitive verb. Ex: I loathe cops.[:D]

'Loath' is an adjective.

Amazing...

Can one not do the same by typing body of text in microsoft word, or similar, and then paste into the post?
Yeah, but I think we're already into a body of users who are, shall we say, on the lazy side. You make that suggestion, then they actually have to open the other program and either configure or learn how to use the spell-check feature, etc., etc.

I thought since the one I referenced was browser-based -- and presumably they already have a browser open since they're all webbing into BW -- maybe they'd use it. I'm so cute when I'm naive.[:D]

They look really well made and in the store at least the screen seems to have the highest contrast.

Yes and I feel suitably motivated now to dig around and bring some old (unread) English grammar books right out of the closet.[;)]
