Today I saw the word "curate" (priest) used to represent "create". I HATE spellchecker because people get downright lazy about their spelling. (And yes, it's "their", not "there" or "they're".) Growing up in the '50s and '60s, my generation was positively DRILLED in proper spelling and punctuation. If I need someone to interpret an email or a post, it's not English!

Oh, and speaking of language, if you really don't have an adequate descriptive word for something, do us all a favor and do not substitute the F word for le mot juste. Try to get through a day without using it as an adjective or an expostulation. And if you simply can't do that, at least have the courtesy not to use it at the top of your lungs while walking down the street.
