People, including myself, would much rather help someone who sounds professional than someone who enters a channel and immediately starts spewing out jibberish.

I am indifferent to it all. I am yet to enter a room and find that the conversation is totally compliant with English as Shakespeare knew it. I think overuse of 'netspeak' is un-necessary but at the same time it doesn't kill anyone. It's a matter of to each their own.

The other thing is that a spellchecker is often also the spellfixer, as per many word processing programmes.

Blah: I nearly forgot too, there is no such thing as a dictionary that caters for every language. There's hundreds of languages in the world with tens of thousands of dialects. It'd take hundreds of years to account for them all, even if they could all be understood by the authors of the dictionaries.
