without wishing to get drawn into this either way... can I just point out that
just about all linux distros come with several dictionary/spelling tools...
so what is the deal with your spelling man?
I don't want to sound critical but it does somewhat detract from the
intellectual credibility of your arguments...
Korea... (not 'koria')
infinite... (not 'infinit')
they're (not 'their')
nor (not 'nore')
not hard is it..
just a few small changes and people might take you more seriously.
and may consider the views you present as being worthy of serious
It really doesn't matter to me... I just think it's a shame that your
otherwise flawless and insightful arguments may be disregarded as a result of
these trivial insults to the English language.
