Actually she did not. Go back and read her post. She said she ran it through her spell checker and it came up with 7 errors.

She said she ran it through spell check, she didn't say she ran it through spell/grammar check. As I said, I ran it again using both and still don't get 7 errors.

Yes she said she ran it through her spell check (which she did) and got 7 errors (which she did). She did not say she got 7 spelling errors like you claim she said. She said her spell check (which also happens to check grammar) came back with 7 errors.

You have obviously chosen not to read what I wrote. FINE. What I said was I do not, running the passage through spell check with grammar check, get 7 errors. Spelling and/or grammar. I said that. You have chosen not to see that that's what I said. Yes, I assumed and stated so, that by running it through spell check she got spelling errors. She did not indicate she ran it through grammar check, only spell check. I then stated I re-ran it and still do not get 7 total of any kind errors. I get two and one British spelling. Grammar check found nothing on my computer with the level set at FORMAL.

I am taking this to PM as this has gotten far off track of the original topic.

Wow. People have got really steamed over this one. DC and spelling have a chequered history, perhaps we can move on quickly from this!?

VB is known as a stickler for correctness, I really admire that and love it in her. But even she can make the odd mistake...I'm not saying how many

Nevertheless, I think a post on forum, however ironic it turns out to be, is a very different scenario from a headteacher's letter home to parents. Vera is not teaching my children nor writing in a professional capacity. Also, I would expect, if as most teachers do, she had hadn't it to a secretary to print out, or type up, it would have been proof read.
