It’s a good thing I did a spell check…

While researching for an article I was writing, I made the mistake of utilizing Yahoo! Answers. After filling in the subject line, I was notified of a spelling error in my question. I read over my four measly words several times and I simply did not see this supposed offending spelling error. So, finally, I opted to do a spell check before I proceeded with the detail portion of the form.

And this is what I got.

I just…I can’t…nope, I have no words for this.

Thanks, Yahoo! Answers. I would have looked like an idiot asking a question about scholarship statistics when I really meant to ask about schostatip statistics.

Yeesh.

  1. What a great spell-checker! I wonder if it’s the same spell-checker used by Yahoo’s writers and editors. That might explain the number of errors they make every day.

  2. Do you have any idea how difficult it is, to find good schostatip statistics? Actually, I have never found a need for such data—I just assume it would be hard to find…

    I have a large number of screen-shots I took, of spell-check funnies. I would, however, expect something extremely public, i.e. Yahoo!, to get it right! Silly me!

    I do not read Yahoo!, anymore. I gave up on them, a few years back.

  3. My WordPress account corrects me when I spell things like an American, and Office corrects me when spell things like a Brit. I’m Canadian, so naturally I’m impartial. Drives me insane.

  4. I don’t understand why Spell Check does that. It does it in MS Word sometimes, too. Just isolates a portion of the word and gives you results for spelling it correctly — only it’s NOT correct, its a f*cking portion of a word! So strange.
