Spell check changing words

The spell check (if on a iPhone anyway) is awful! Ill be literally looking at the word I'm typing, it's right on my phone & it completely changes once in a post. My words get changed constantly & it's really annoying. I've read others say it's bad too & then 2 seconds to realize it & try & try to change post & often can't.

The policy on changing a post wouldnt be so bad if the spellcheck wasn't changing what one is typing...it's the worst I've seen on a website

Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately for you, LoveShack.org has no spellcheck native to the bulletin board. That feature resides on one's browser or access portal. You should be able to shut off any spellchecking from your end.

Spellcheck is an abomination. Disable it.

I was going to post something like "Spellcheck is the spawn of the devil, formulated by evil people" but thought that might be a little overdramatic. But it's a horrible thing. Horrible.

I think it can be very entertaining at times. Someone wrote on here recently asking if some person had made any "apparitions" in their life or sth like that.

It's been disabled on my phone for the last year. That's why I can't figure why it's only on this website. Only this site, every time I'm on.

I use the WSYiWYG reply box here to reply and just checked with Safari and deliberately mispelled a word and Safari underlined it as misspelled so I control-clicked on the word and it offered me some ideas on spelling as well as the option to shut spell-check off under an 'options' item. Once unchecked, I can now misspeell to my harts contint.

People on phones may not have the same options, IDK.
