  • It can, but it's also an extra step that many would just as soon skip. Nothing substitutes for a spell checker like a good ol' fashioned education. And if you misspell minor things, many will look the other way.

  • Or, you could type in a text-editor, and then paste it into the body of a message/reply. One of the more useful aspects of this way is that you can then run a spell check on your post. Spell check can save people from some very embarrassing moments.

  • I don't think you can turn it off.... And you either type ultra-fast, or your computer/connection is slow, and "type-lag" exists between pressing the keyes and when the letters appear electronically on your monitor.
