"KA-BOOM!" How's that for a pot-shot?
Or would you prefer "Plink!"? . . .
Sandy, your steel must be corroding. The smiley (
) was meant to show it was a light-hearted comment. I don't remember seeing any real pot-shots before, so I sent a few your way in an attempt to lighten the situation. It's been said that I have a weird sense of humor.
Yes, a spell checker would be nice, but this IS a free site that is fortunately not over-encumbered with advertisements. I counted
two ads and nine advertising links
on the home page, and only one advertisement and no advertising links
on the alphaAgora pages. Meanwhile, on this board's predecessor, I counted
12 on the home page, and 24 ads and
advertising links on their Agora page. That's the second reason I rarely haunt that board anymore.
BTW, I had to look up corroding
just to make sure I had all the letters in the right places.
Drop a Private Message to Andrew the Board God (ashaffer -- he's the first one in the Memberlist when you click that link) and ask if they can or intend to add a spell checker. Make sure you address him as Andrew, not Andy (I have it on good authority!). He added all those Accented Characters when I instigated that, and I have a few more I have to corral and send off to him (e. g., the two oo pronunciation symbols with a macron (straight line) or a breve (curved line) over the two characters to get the different oo sounds in food (f[sub]
[/sub]d) and look (l[sub]
[/sub]k) without having to hijack the .gif's from Bartleby.
Don't take offense; we really are a nice lot. If anyone becomes really offensive, The Good Doctor or Andrew will intervene, as they have in the past.
Take time to smell the Magnolias!
Oops. Corrections are in color; that's why there's an Edit Button. The advertising links at the bottom of the alphaDictionary home page were so unobtrusive I missed them the first time!
